A lone figure, remembering Whaley dead of two wars

cenotaph lone figure A woman from Whaley Bridge, who had planted her personal cross in the grass near the fencing in Memorial Park on Remembrance Sunday 2013, walked a little nearer the Cenotaph at the top of the hill. It looked a very sad, unused memorial. She has been coming to the service of memory at the Cenotaph every year since her parents died. The unknown woman was remembering her father's two uncles, who died in World War I. One lies in a war grave in France, the other was killed at Gallipolli. She also remembered a close friend of the family - known then as 'uncle' - who was killed in World War II, serving with the RAF.
