The Inscription, as follows, can be read on a larger size view than the thumbnail allows: "Remember the Men of Cheltenham who gave their lives in The Great War if they were strangers to one another here in their common home, they served and wrought and died in many lands near and far as a band of brothers. Learn from them so to live and die, that when you have followed them and are no more seen you may like them, be remembered and regretted." NB - The Great War - in which up to 9 million combatants are reported to have died - is now more commonly known as the First World War (WW1). Although, obviously, this renaming only became possible as the Second World War (WW2) approached.
