War Memorial, Metheringham, Lincolnshire

Metheringham War Memorial is one of the finest village war memorials in Lincolnshire and a splendid tribute to those men from the village who made the supreme sacrifice in two World Wars.The War Memorial was unveiled on Sunday 12th December 1920 by the Marchioness of Carisbrooke, daughter of the Earl of Londesborough of nearby Blankney Hall. It records the names of 42 soldiers who died in the Great war between 1914 and 1918. Twenty five years later, eight further names were added as a result of lives lost during the second World War. The white Italian marble figure depicts a soldier in the uniform of the Lincolnshire Regiment with his rifle reversed and head bowed.
