Three names added to the WW1 names of the fallen, after the Large Plaque was unveiled, that belong to WW2 .
Connah’s Quay and Shotton Cenotaph. – WW2 Names (86) – Including the 3 in the photograph above.
Disclaimer :- I have tried to research the names of 5 men who are only recorded below with a surname and an initial, with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website, but have failed to find any information, so I apologize in advance and would be very grateful for any information on these that I cannot find on the CWGC website, even a very small clue would help. Please contact the Flintshirewarmemorial.com website.
Connah’s Quay Urban District Council Welcome Home Association sent this letter to returning Servicemen from Connah’s Quay. There were Welcome Home Associations in many towns in both World Wars and I believe the local Community pulled together to make sure that our Servicemen had comforts.
With thanks to Anne Foster who’s father William Thomas Coppack (1919 – 2012) was in the R.A.F. in WW2 and survived, he was sent this letter from the Council, she generously allowed me to put it on the page as it is of historical local interest.
