Inscription

{Beneath a representation of the Victoria Cross medal:}

Site: Fulham war memorial (5 memorials)

SW6, Putney Bridge Approach, Vicarage Gardens

A building had been here, about where this monument is, since before 1430. It became the vicarage but its large garden was much reduced by the building of the Putney Bridge Approach in 1886. By 1921 the vicarage had moved away. This monument was unveiled in Fulham Palace Road in 1920 and was moved to this site in 1934.

The VC plaques are laid into the terrace immediately in front of the memorial.
