Armstrongs Group was delighted to build and donate a lasting memorial to the brave Bolton residents who lost their lives at Gallipoli in 1915.
The memorial is a 6-metre high sandstone obelisk with a brass plaque detailing the names of the 236 soldiers from the 1st Battalion Lancashire Fusiliers who fell in battle.
This new commemorative statue was unveiled by civic dignitaries in a special commemoration service. Emma Armstrong of Armstrongs Group said:
“We are proud to support such a prestigious memorial remembering the fallen in our local community. We hope that many people will visit the memorial and enjoy a fulfilling and uplifting experience.”
The memorial is located in Queen’s Park in Bolton. We invite everyone to visit and pay their respects to the local people who protected us by making the ultimate sacrifice.
