Located on Nimble Hill Road, just south of the town library, stand three stone memorials for those who served from Newington in our country's wars.
The oldest one (on right) was erected by the Shakesperian Club in 1926, followed by the World War II monument (left) in 1949 by the Newington Veterans Association. The center stone represents those who served during the Korean War (no date is inscribed on this one).

I didn't get a separate close-up photograph of the World War II Memorial, so hopefully I got the above names transcribed correctly. On the tablet, the names are listed surname first, which I changed here.

The transcription of the oldest memorial can be seen in an earlier post here:
