Lest we forget

The war to end all wars started a hundred years ago, and despite that we still endured another World War. Remembrances of these (and other conflicts) are being dedicated all over the world but here, at home, in Dartmouth, I came across this beautiful memorial to 5 boys (Sea Cadets) who served, and died, in the global struggle against Fascism.

The dedication plaque tells the whole story. Just months before the end of WWII 5 boys who volunteered to serve their country, and the crew of their training ship, were killed by a mine. Amongst other things these boys, and their shipmates helped lay vital communications and fuel lines to the D day beaches.
