Skinningrove War Memorial

The Service of Dedication for the Memorial included a volley of riffle fire, which this images shows. Chris Colbeck advises us: ”I have same picture postcard which came from father Mr Edgar Colbeck, who was apprenticed at Wm Arrowsmith Monumental Masons from 1928. The text on the back of the card states: Skinningrove War Memorial; In Cornish Rustic Granite. Transported, erected by Wm Arrowsmith. 15′ 0″ X 9′ 6″ X 6′ 6″ overall. Total Cost  £190.”
