La Ferte-sous-Jouarre Memorial


La Ferte


La Ferte-sous-Jouarre Memorial, Seine-et-Marne, France, commemorates nearly 4,000 officers and men of the British Expeditionary Force who died in August, September and the early part of October 1914 and who have no known grave. The monument consists of a rectangular block of stone, with the names of the dead engraved on stone panels on all sides of the monument. The monument is surmounted by a sarcophagus and a trophy carved in stone. At the four corners of the pavement are stone piers with urns, carved with the coats of arms of the Empire.

Three men of the North Irish Horse, Private W. Moore, Private H. StG. L. Scott, and Driver M. Callanan, are commemorated here.
