Market Harborough's war memorial is 90 years old

The Harborough Mail reports:
A service will be held on Sunday to mark the 90th anniversary of the war memorial cross being unveiled in Harborough. 
The cross was given to the town by the War Memorial Committee in honour of the men who died during the First World War. 
As well as the fallen, the cross serves as a tribute to all those from the town and the Bowdens who served in the war. The memorial bears the names of 248 soldiers from Harborough who died in the war.
Elsewhere on the newspaper's website, you can find film of the dedication of the memorial in 1921.
