The Lych Gate and War Memorial
The Lych Gate, Saint Cadocs Church Caerleon, 1924.

Above, the St Cadocs Church Lych gate and below the War Memorial. These photos were kindly sent to us by Jennifer Tinnion. The young man in both photos is Donald Cyrus Brown who was a second cousin of Jennifer. The photos were taken in 1924, since then the building to the left of the Lych Gate has been demolished making the end of the row of cottages end rather abruptly... and the War Memorial has been moved to the small park alongside the Town hall. So both photos are good examples of the continuity and change evident all around in Caerleon. But the most significant change that has taken place to the War Memorial is the addition of extra plaques bearing the names of those killed in the Second World War - behind each name many lives turned upside down. For more about Caerleon's fallen please follow this link. Also for the Roll of Honour please follow this link.
