Big Tree Memorial Stone


The inscription on the stone at the Big Tree Memorial reads:

"BIG TREE"
REMEMBERING SACRIFICES MADE
IN THE NORTHERN IRELAND AND
FALKLANDS CONFLICTS
UNVEILED BY
EARL KITCHENER
OF KHARTOUM
APRIL 1983.

See how the Big Tree looked in 1983 on Old Hyde.

See how the Big Tree looked in 2007 on Hyde Daily Photo Vol. 1.

A contribution to signs, signs.

  1. EARL KITCHENER OF KHARTOUM had to look this up. He was the thrird and last as the line died with him. Seems his niece had inherited the title as the Queen granted it to her.
