COLWYN BAY WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 & Korea - Detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Martin Edwards 2009
World War 2 & Korea - Bill Bagnall

The main Colwyn Bay war memorial was moved to Queen's Gardens, Conway Road, Colwyn Bay in 1964 when the Council Offices closed; it was originally erected in front of the Town Hall originally. The memorial takes the form of a soldier standing at ease, left foot forward resting on a rock atop an Ashlar Pylon plinth with a four stepped base. The inscription is on the front face of the plinth and the names on panels to sides. The memorial is flanked by cast iron lamp standards to either side. Below the name panels are friezes that depict soldiers marching to war ("military"); the deck of an armed merchant ship ("naval"); returning soldiers & sailors, some wounded, and nurses ("the homecoming"). There are 174 names listed for World War 1, 38 for World War 2 and one for Korea. The scultor was John Cassidy of Manchester, the engineer and surveyor was Mr W.J. Dunning from Colwyn Bay Council and the bronze founders were H. H. Martyn & Co. Ltd., of Cheltenham. The foundation stone was fashioned by two monumental masons, F. M. & H. Nuttall of Manchester and the local firm of Davies & Son. The memorial fund collected £1,000. The memorial was unveiled on Saturday 11th November 1922 at 10:30 a.m. by The Right Hon. Lord Colwyn. The names for World War 1, World War 2 and Korea have been transcribed here. Close to the main memorial is a further memorial in the form of an angled tablet made from slate and commemorating those who did National Sevice. There is also a memorial to the Dunkirk Veterans in the form of an angled slate tablet and another to celebrated the Colwyn Bay RAF Association 50th Anniversary. A futher 50th Anniversary memorial in the same form as the RAF mmeorial is to be found commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Royal Artillery Association.

Falkland war hero memorial plea snub
May 3 2007
by Martin Williams, North Wales Weekly News

A FAMILY battling for permission to honour a Falklands war hero on the 25th anniversary of his death has been snubbed.

Ron Chapman, of Tan-y-Graig Road, Old Colwyn, has been locked in a bitter dispute with the trustees of Old Colwyn’s war memorial committee for several years.

Ron has been trying to erect a plaque or have David Osbourne’s name added to the memorial list at St Catherine’s Church on Abergele Road after his 23-year-old nephew was killed on May 4, 1982, when his ship HMS Sheffield was sunk in action.

He made the request on behalf of his 73-year-old sister Joyce, who wishes the committee would see sense.

“This is a difficult time because this week marks the 25th anniversary of my David’s death,” said Joyce.

OSBORNE

David

Cook 1st Class D158914V, HMS Sheffield, Royal Navy. Died when his ship was hit by an Exocet missile 4th May 1982. Aged 22. Born 8 July 1959. Resident Portsmouth, Hampshire.
