“This photo was taken at the Rye Playland Read Wildlife Sanctuary.  In 1944
the 1st Marine Division fought Japan at Cape Gloucester on the Island of New
Britain and Peleliu in the Palaus Island chain.

Both battles were hard fought victories with high casualties for the Marines.  The significance of this mini-monument here in Rye is unknown.”
