Leckhampstead War Memorial

Leckhampstead War Memorial is a Grade II listed war memorial in Leckhampstead, Berkshire, which commemorates 89 local men who served in the First World War, including 17 war dead. The names of two more war casualties were added after the Second World War.

The memorial was funded by a Canadian businessman, Hector Morison, who lived in the village from 1908. It is sited on the triangular village green, near the Grade II listed Leckhampstead House. Unusually, salvaged military items – shell cases, bullets and bayonets – were used as a form of trench art to decorate the memorial.
