Full description

Walls, S., 2010, The Materiality of Remembrance: Twentieth Century War Memorials in Devon, 206; Figure 6.39b; PMT01 (Post-Graduate Thesis). SDV355902.

In East Devon, World War is only used for two First World War memorials, the 1992 Sidbury roll of honour replacement and more notably the Plymtree First World War tablet. The use of World War upon this memorial suggests that the tablet was probably erected after 1945. An aspect which is further supported by the identical form, material and inscription (i.e. In grateful remembrance of..... who made the supreme sacrifice, in the world war...) to the Second World War memorial tablet which is located immediately below.
