MESHAW'S SOLITARY GREAT WAR MEMORIAL

 

The 1914 - 1919  plaque in Meshaw Church

Meshaw's only Great War Casualty

© Richard J. Brine

Meshaw is a very small place; it does not have the large cross with a long list of names that we associate with so many Devon villages  yet this  is as moving as any of them - a single plaque with just the one name commemorating a much-loved son, and an only son at that, whose death had brought the future of his family line to an end.
