The memorials relevant to this photo are not visible as they are now in the STEAM Museum building, but worthy of inclusion as they are memorials to GWR workers.

On the GWR site now is the STEAM Museum and in that are 12 War Memorials to workers that died in WW1 & WW2. The images in the attached composite photo were taken on the 8th June 2013 after a Britain From Above get-together. For details of one memorial and the names on it, see www.roll-of-honour.com/Wiltshire/SwindonGWRLoco.html

This image has been shown as part of the event held at the Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre - as a reference to everybody who attended and would like to revisit the selection!
