63 names added to town’s me­mo­rial af­ter cam­paign

Yorkshire Post - - ARMISTICE 100 -

THEIR NAMES have been carved with pride af­ter a long-run­ning cam­paign to recog­nise their val­our.

And to­mor­row the 63 ‘for­got­ten he­roes’ of Bridling­ton will take pride of place in the town’s Re­mem­brance cer­e­mony.

Af­ter a painstak­ing search their names were carved into the me­mo­rial off Prospect Street to en­sure their mem­o­ries con­tinue to live on more than a cen­tury af­ter they fell.

Coun Liam Deal­try, who led the cam­paign to add them to the me­mo­rial, said: “In this year of the 100th an­niver­sary of the Armistice, it’s nice to say the boys are home. We have tried our best to make sure all names are now recorded on the war me­mo­rial and apol­o­gise if any are still miss­ing.”
