Long Description:
Polozapomenutý pomnícek Josefa Hlušicky a Františka Kellnera. Stojí hned vedle kaple Nalezení sv. Kríže. První z nich zde padl 6. kvetna 1945 pri bojích s nemeckou presilou. Bylo mu 25 let a krátce predtím se vrátil z nasazení v ríši. Druhý podlehl zranením o den pozdeji ve veku 32 let. Pomník pripomínající tuto událost však zarustá trávou, písmo na nem necitelné, žula je pokrytá lišejníkem.
