William

The memorial stone you refer to was relocated alongside the New/Victory College Parade Square at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in the early 1960s

I too was asking about the monument a while ago, it was a white obelisk.

I remember going past it in the very early 60s and later being told that it had been removed because it was "bad for the morale of the Germans".

I didn't know that it was now at Sandhurst.

Can anyone tell me if Victory Hill Range had a monument? We never used the place in my time that I know of, but a lot of the boys who had been over previously with the 27th Bde told stories about the place. I understood from them that was where Monty took the surrender, but a lot of people say a lot of things that turn out to be unfounded legends.
