Monument: Rotherhithe war memorial

Inscription

{The inscription on the front of the plinth has become illegible, all but:}
... who gave their lives in the wars
1914 – 1918
1939 – 1945

The Rotherhithe people were prescient or just lucky. The way they had worded the text for their WW1 memorial meant that all they had to do in incorporate WW2 was to add the dates and an 's' to 'war'.
