Chippenham War Memorial

Passing through Chippenham, Wiltshire today, I chanced up on the town War Memorial. At first I was quite sure what it was because the front (or back) does not seem anything like what a war memorial should look like.

Unfortunately it was a grey day and so the images are not as good as I would have liked. From behind the Roll of Honour is visible, and you can see the purpose behind the structure, which is not too ugly. I suspect it may be some sort of fountain.
