War Memorial

A Memory of Amesbury

I remember the War Memorial being opposite the cinema. When I visited Amesbury last week no one could remember it being there and it is not there now. Does anyone else remember it? I also remember the railway bridge where we all stood letting the steam from the trains blow over us. There was a huge park, well it seemed huge back then, near a cemetery. Are my memories correct I wonder? We lived on the RAF base at Boscombe Down to start with and then we moved to the new council estate in Amesbury. Solstice Rise was the name of our road and everywhere was surrounded by fields unlike what I saw last week!
