Remembering our Servicemen- War Memorials

Three weeks today is Remembrance Sunday, a day when we remember those who have fought bravely in service to our country and the remarkable sacrifice of those who have lost their lives. The North East has made a major contribution during armed conflicts and wars and there are many war memorials around the area dedicated to Northumbrians who have served the country.

These memorials in Blanchland, Wylam and Hexham are just a few of the Hexham constituency's war memorials, remembering the area's local servicemen. I'm always interested to learn more about the history of the area - please send me your photos of any memorials in your community.
