Crown Inn & Memorial (1360 A)
The Crown Inn has over 200 years of history and was extended on the right-hand side some time after this photo was taken.
The memorial was erected in 1906 in memory of a casualty of the Boer War and has the following inscription:
In memory of Frederick Allen Freshney, Trooper, Imperial Light Horse, who was severely wounded at the Battle of Colenso, South Africa, December 15th 1899 and in consequence thereof died at Saltfleet May 20th 1906 aged 32 years.
Brave in action, patient in suffering.
Erected by his many friends.
Taken from a used postcard that has a King George V ½d (halfpenny) stamp, therefore it was most likely posted between 1st January 1912, when the stamp was first issued, and 3rd June 1918 when the postcard rate increased to 1d.
