Worcestershire – Broadway

Lance Corporal John Sidney Cull, who grew up in Badsey, is honoured on the war memorial in the High Street in Broadway.  John Cull (or Jack as he was more commonly known) was living in Broadway at the time of his marriage in 1916, hence the reason for his inclusion on the Broadway memorial.

Sunken panels are etched with the names of 70 men who died in the First World War.  The monument is topped with a Latin cross.
