Polish War Memorial

The delightful memorial at the entrance to the Castle grounds.

Thanks for this pic Malcolm. It is good to know it is still there and even the context looks unchanged with the trees and Rhododendrons behind it. I thought that this area would have been swamped by housing by now but perhaps not...

If the photo could be rotated 180degrees you would see just how close the housing is creeping towards the memorial. There is also a large old folk's home where the walled garden used to be - it's called Castle Gardens.

Great picture Malcolm, nice to see that this historic site is being maintained. I understand that there is to be lighting installed here and wonder when it is supposed to occur. You see I keep track even though I am located in Canada..
Jillian, I remember the walled garden known as the Castle Gardens. If they kept part of it then it would be a nice location for the old folk's home you mention.

It is Harry, I keep saying I'm going on a walk around the town to take updated photos to send in. Things like a photo of the home in the walled garden is now another one on my list!!! Maybe now we are getting better weather I'll do it!!??

That's a great idea there Jillian. I would be interested in a shot of King St. as it is today..go for it.

Hi Harry - been beaten to posting photos of King Street - although I should also have a few from the 70s somewhere as we lived next door to Mr & Mrs Bodell and of course Davie. I don't know if he would remember me as I was only about 8 - 9 at the time!! Must raid my Mum's cupboards for her photo albums to see what I can find!!

That's great Jillian, will watch for some.....I will pass on the info to Davie....

What a beautiful setting for a memorial. I've just found this picture. I remember the Polish camp well and remember the men who were so nice to us kids when we walked by. All the area round about was kept so beautifully.

I just received my yearly xmas card from my friend Berni Moran. She mentioned that she and her sister attended the service in November and that it was very well attended. She also mentioned that the Polish Government bestowed a great honour on Vanda Hardy for her services.
Well done and greatly deserved.
