  1. Grandy family says

    Congratulations on a job well done by the SWAHS committee and by all who volunteered
    time, talent, effort and money.
    So fitting to erect this monument in memory of the brave souls from our SWA.
    It must have been a special moment at the unveiling ceremony.
    We hope to visit this site in the future.

    Best Regards,
