Fareham War Memorial

Unveiled Saturday 2nd July 1921 at 5.45pm

Fareham War Memorial, 2nd July 1921
1914-1919
The men whom this monument commemorates were numbered among
those who at the call of king and country left all that was dear
to them, endured hardship and faced danger, finally passing
from the sight of men by the path of duty and self-sacrifice
giving their own lives that others might live in freedom.
Let those
who come after see to it that their names be not forgotten.
Erected by the inhabitants of the Fareham Urban District.

Also in memory of
the officers and men of the 26th, 35th and 108th heavy
batteries of the Royal Garrison Artillery.

The 1919 date refers to the year when the Treaty of Versailles was signed. This was the peace treaty drawn up by the nations who attended the Paris Peace Conference and officially ended the state of war between Germany and the Allied Powers when it was signed on 28th June 1919.

Please note that whilst every effort has been made to check the details on this page, the web designer / researcher cannot be held responsible for any errors that may have arisen. Although the War Memorial is adjacent to Holy Trinity church, we do not have any records about the individuals mentioned on the memorial itself.

If you do have any information about those listed, or have spotted any error, then I would love to hear from you!
