CENO­TAPH ME­MO­RIAL

The Star Late Edition - - METRO -

THE Ceno­taph was built in 1926 and is a replica of the ceno­taph in White­hall, Lon­don, de­signed by Sir Ed­win Lu­tyens.

The Ceno­taph was first inau­gu­rated as a me­mo­rial for sol­diers who died in World War I, 1914-1918. In­scrip­tions to those who died in World War II were added in 1947.

In 2002, a fur­ther in­scrip­tion was added, to make the mon­u­ment in­clu­sive of mil­i­tary he­roes and vic­tims of all bat­tles and wars.
