Description

Rockley War Memorial is made up of three brick pillars with the centre pillar carrying a clock on one face.

The clock was erected in memory of the late Lieut. Colonel Harold McIntosh who was killed in the attack on Gaza in April, 1917. He was shot in the groin and the bullet pierced his artery. Medical staff managed to rejoin the artery but unfortunately, over night, the artery burst open while he was asleep and he bled to death in 30 seconds.

He is the only soldier mentioned on the memorial.
