The War Memorial in Reading is not really a spectacular memorial, it does not have any Roll of Honour, or any of the trappings normally associated with war memorials that I have seen, in fact it is probably better described as a Cenotaph. It is situated on a small island outside the gates of Forbury Gardens at Google Earth co-ordinates 51.456553°, -0.968066°.
Interestingly enough, not too far away from the cenotaph, affixed to a building next to St Laurence Church is a plaque relating to the bombing of Reading on 10 February 1943.
