War Memorial, Tweedmouth


The war memorial at Tweedmouth is located by the south bank of the River Tweed between the Old Bridge and the Royal Tweed Bridge. It was built to commemorate 117 local service men and a civilian munitions worker (Ellen Ainslie) who lost their lives in the First World War. The memorial was unveiled on the 25th of October 1920 by Captain W. Watson Armstrong of 7th Northumberland Fusiliers.[1] The Prince of Wales laid a wreath here on the 16th of May 1928.[2], on the day he opened the Royal Tweed Bridge. Later, the memorial was further dedicated to those lost in the Second World War. The name of a soldier killed in the Falklands war (1982) was also added to the memorial. Tweedmouth war memorial is Grade II listed.
