Long Description:
Near the Swansea War Memorial are two cairns like structures with standing stone in the centre.

One reads the lines from 'The Fallen' a poem by Laurence Binyon, in both Welsh and English. They are inscribed using copper lettering and are a permanent feature of the memorial side, but separate from the main cenotaph.

The Welsh lettering falls at:- N 53.226907, W 4.129473
The English lettering falls at:- N 53.226923, W 4.129062

The Welsh one reads:-

Ni heneiddiant hwy fel ni a adawyd
Ni ddwg oed iddynt ludded
Na'r biynyddoedd gollfarn mwy
Pan elo'r haul i lawr ac ar wawr y bore -
Ni a'r cofiwn hwy.

The English one reads:-

They shall grow not old as we that are left grow old
Age shall not weary them nor the years condemn
At the going of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them
