“This is william Jones (Bill) Royal Welsh Fussiliers. Killed on 20th September 1944, near the Belgium-Holland border. After losing his first wife, after the birth of his third daughter, he married my gran from Sixmilescross and had two sons, Bill and Winston. He would have shopped in Sixmilescross, had a beer in its pubs and fished the Remackin and Cloughfin rivers. He was shot at the young age of 28 when my father was 3 years old.

Just one of thousands who won’t be forgotten.”
