Armistice Day Observed In Oxford

Armistice Day was Observed across Oxford today commemorating the end of World War I in 1918. It is nice to see the large city and county memorials around the country honouring the men who never returned with the names of local men, however I have started to notice other memorials around. List of names who worked for different organisations, member of sporting clubs, college students and staff, railway employee etc, and this one listing name of men from the Oxford Post Office who went off to war and never returned. It is comforting to know that these names are still displayed around for all to see and reflect when visiting these places.

Would be interested if you have seen a small memorial in your work place or other area.
