Norman Cross Memorial (1914)

Large crowds in attendance at the unveiling of the Norman Cross Memorial on Tuesday 28th July 1914. The memorial to the 1,770 prisoners who died at the Napoleonic prisoner of war camp was erected by the Entente Cordiale Society and featured a bronze eagle which was stolen in 1990 but replaced by a new one in 2005 after a fundraising appeal.
