As a journalist by training, I found this memorial very moving and peaceful. It was made even more poignant when I came across the name of a journalist I had met early in my career. It is well worth a visit as it sits between...More

An easy walk from the middle of town, this tribute is moving and eye opening. Spending time in the war museum, cemetery and the memorial was a perfect way to spend a pretty fall afternoon.

Beautiful, emotional, quite unique and lovingly maintained. The columns with named of war zone journalists killed while covering battles is chronological. Sad that almost every year has some names. Enlightening to see how the hot spots shift geographically, but produce equally tragic results.

Journalists are often the overlooked casualties of war but this memorial is a stark reminder of their sacrifices - in every year since 1945. Its easy to miss but the memorials are in a peaceful wooded glade across the road from the British War cemetery.

Found this gem by accident while walking from the British cemetery to the museum across the road. Well taken care of and designed in a way to make your walk through the memorial reflective of the price of freedom of the press. Some names and...More

Other than names engraved in stone by year, there isn't much here. But then, that's the point. It's a stark reminder that hundred of journalists have died doing their jobs.
