Long Description:
While the upper faces of the grey granite base of the Column enumerate the 29 Ensay 'locals' that died in the 'GREAT WAR" [1914-1918], there is a beveled rectangular grey granite lower face to the base, with gilded lettering on it, for the FOUR locals that died in World War Two.

It reads:

"World War 1939 - 1945"
Costello K.P.	28 Age
Kerr P.C.	22
Lanteri J.	21
McCartin P.L.	29
