LEAVING CHELTENHAM ..............and all that was dear

"Remember the men of Cheltenham who gave their lives for you in the Great War 1914 - 1919.   If they were strangers to one another here in their common home, they served and wrought and died in many lands near and far as a Band of Brothers.   Learn from them so to live and die that, when you have followed them and are no more seen, you may, like them, be remembered and regretted".
