Another Aftermath

Another interesting thing I saw in Stratford was the World War I memorial, with long lists of names under the dates "1914-1919". I don't imagine the memorial makers were ignorant of the fact that the armistice was November 11, 1918: even if they were, surely someone would have corrected it by now. More likely the dates mean that at least one local boy was killed in France in 1919, at least seven weeks after the armistice.
