Blidworth unveils its first war memorial

In October we reported that Glenrothes in Scotland was about to unveil its first war memorial. 

This weekend, Blidworth, a village in Nottinghamshire, has also unveiled its first memorial.  Commemorating soldiers who have died from the First World War onwards, it includes the name of Private Andrew Cutts, who was killed while serving in Afghanistan last year. 

Glenrothes also featured the names of two servicemen killed in the recent conflict in Iraq and it appears that recent deaths are prompting communities to consider how they commemorate all war deaths.
