New memorials erected in Penarth

Certain people in Penarth have been busy recently as a couple of new memorials have been erected. One, commemorating two Penarth-born men who were awarded the Victoria Cross during the Great War, has been placed on the front wall of the Penarth District Council Offices in Stanwell Road, Penarth.

The second, placed in Penarth RFC Club, commemorates 17 club players who were either killed in action, died of wounds or died of illness in WW1. Produced by a local artist, Andrew Coslett, it complements the memorial stand that was erected at the ground in February 1925.
