Leicestershire and Rutland War Memorials Project by Liz Blood.
A visual tour of some war memorials around Leicestershire and Rutland, telling part of the story of communities’ efforts to commemorate local people who died as a result of world conflicts, especially after World War One and World War Two. However it does not end there, local war memorials commemorate casualties from conflicts stretching back to the early 15th century and, of course, down to the present day. Liz Blood explored some of the stylistic and historical significance of local war memorials, as well as their diversity.
