  1. It is not the original one. If you think back a few years to when there was a spate of scrap metal thefts from war memorials, cast iron drain covers , road signs etc etc. This sign fell victim to the thefts, I remember it had been removed and one little bit of the corner had snapped off. I’m unsure who funded the modern replica , and now it has been there a few years who would know?….but it is sadly not the original market.
