Rangers Memorial in Weymouth

Another memorial on the Promenade in Weymouth is the American Rangers Memorial.  The memorial, unveiled in 1947, is in memory of American Servicemen 1939-1945.

There are a number of events on the memorial, although it is really geared towards the lead up to D-Day, and the landings by the Americans, as well as the battle at Lyme Bay in Dorset.
