Weathered upright stone with inscription incised on front face.
The monument was erected in 1897 on the site of the French invasion to commemorate the centenary. The plan in 1797 was to divert British troops away from Ireland where the French planned a major attack. The French troops landed at Carreg Wastad, led by Colonel William Tate, an American, but after three days surrendered on Goodwick Sands.
