The Middle

This panel differs from the rest, in that it isn't showing the performance of the scene from the 2010 Pageant but is a commemorative depiction of the memorial that stands by the towns church. The names, from the memorial, of those from Axbridge who gave their lives in these wars are shown on the panel. On the left is a soldier of the Great War, standing beneath the flag of the Somerset Light Infantry. On the right is a British solider of WW2 beneath the Union Flag. The background has the outline of the Mendip Hills above. Axbridge, with war graves and falling poppies.
