Leslie war memorial obelisk © Leslie Community CouncilLeslie war memorial sits at the east end of the High Street in the town. It was unveiled by Sir Ralph Anstruther on 30 January 1921. It records the names of those from the twon who fell in both World War I and II.

In 2006 a project was undertaken to install 5 floodlights around the memorial. The intention is to illuminate all 4 sides of the memorial to enhance the look of the memorial and also improve its security.

The war memorial pillar sits on a two stepped base. At the top of the pillar each face has a symbol. On the west capital is a cross and the word sacrafice, on the north face is a saltire and the word endurance on the east side a shield and lion rampany are shown with the words grip fast and finally on the south capital is a sword for valour.
