The local memorial I didn't know was there...

I decided it was time to look at some local memorials within walking distant of my home. I did a bit of research on the internet first and was surprised to find a memorial in Epsom only 10 minutes walk from my house and one I have passed everyday taking my children to school without realising it was there.   I did a bit of research into Epsom during the time of WW1 and found for a short time there was a training camp at Alexandra Park. There was also a convalescent home in Domett Avenue .   The memorial itself was erected in 1919 at the entrance of Marivare Reserve, 28 local men are commemorated.
