A seasonal winter view of Whitehaven Cenotaph

A 'seasonal' view of Whitehaven Cenotaph
(December 2010)

The above 'seasonal' photograph shows Whitehaven Cenotaph in Castle Park, Whitehaven, Cumbria (December 2010). This Cenotaph was first dedicated on 2 November 1923 to commemorate the Fallen of the 1914 - 1918 war. As can be seen in the photograph after the Second World War an additional stone was added at the front to commemorate the Fallen of the 1939 - 1945 war.

Since 1923 this Cenotaph, like the many others throughout Britain and Europe, has stood in silent witness to remember the fallen of the World Wars and other conflicts. Regardless of sun, rain, sleet or snow it always there for them.
