There is at least one memorial in each town and village in Hertsmere. Each one is different and displays a proud elegance, fitting of the brave men and women who gave their lives and whose names are etched on their side.
The memorials are a permanent reminder of the sacrifices made, ultimately for the freedom each of us experience today.
