Another postcard found, this must have been an important memorial at the time.

Hello Paul

The end of ABW and the creation of the many memorials coincided with the postcard boom which was always interested in topical subjects - like new war memorials.

My friend in York has been unwell and not able to check if the wooden model of the Yorkshire Memorial is still in Treasurer's House.

Yes, I recently introduced to The Register a Research Centre , one of the free queries is to list names by memorial.

Click here for the Yorkshire County memorial .
