This is the second Mendi Memorial that I was able to add to these pages, and like the one in Avalon seems to be in danger of loosing its context. The photographer remarked that a light has been taken from the top of the memorial and the area was filthy. The Google Street view of the memorial also showed an unmaintained and water sodden area that does not befit what it stands for.
