War Memorials

War memorials were mainly constructed after WWI to commemorate the troops who gave their lives in the war. Many were then updated after WWII. Some war memorials date back to the Boer War. Almost every town and village in Britain has a War Memorial. They take many forms, the commonest being an obelisk, a cross or statue of a soldier. Some commemorate the inhabitants of a place, some are for schools and others are for companies or Military groupings.
Many memorials are grade II listed, 61 are II* listed, LinkExternal link*_listed_war_memorials_in_England

Cobh

Cobh, known from 1849 until 1920 as Queenstown, is a tourist seaport town on the south coast of County Cork. Cobh is on the south side of Great Island in Cork Harbour and is home to Ireland's only cruise terminal. Tourism in the area draws on the maritime and emigration legacy of the town. It was associated with the RMS Titanic & RMS Lusitania.
On a high point in the town stands the cathedral church of St Colman's, which is one of the tallest buildings in Ireland.
