A noteworthy memorial, Chris.
Chris: Interesting isn't it, a celebration of a young life lost..

Who's Yazza? I've heard of some chap called Gazza. Whatever, it looks like they were well remembered.
Chris: Yazza must be this young lady, presumably a resident of Glastonbury where this image was taken..

I don't know who Yazza was - but a bit less cult ceremony and a bit more respect for the soldiers 1914-1919 should be - in my feeling.
Chris: Yazza is the young lady illustrated who had obviously died at a tragically young age in Glastonbury where this image comes from. I don't think this marks any sort of disrespect toward the Great War casualties

There wasn't another place in Glastonbury to commemorate her? Even the number 1914 cannot be read anymore.
Chris: This was simply a temporary and transitory thing Philine, the WW1 memorial is permanent
An unusual place to have a memorial like this isn't it. I suppose they got permission from the war memorial people
Chris: Glastonbury is a bit of a law unto itself Janet
People obviously loved her.
Chris: Absolutely - I can't see any harm in this for a short while
A very sad loss for her family and friends, but remembered in the special remembance spot. I'm sure those who are remembered here from the war would not mind.
Chris: I'm sure they wouldn't Suzanne, they all died young too
This is a very curious habit that has developed in recent years - I suspect that it is the result of foreign travel and seeing flowers at the sites of deaths on the road in France and Italy.
Hmmm I'm not sure about this. I don't imagine any disrespect was intended to the dead of the war, but perhaps in the grounds of the church would have been a better idea
I like these ad hoc memorials...
Of course one explanation could be that she was member of the armed forces?
