    Hi Dave, I'm getting the "Error 503 : Service Temporarily Unavailable" message again on SHROH ? Cheers Ste
  3. Just had this info from the council for those interested- As you are probably aware, in commemoration and remembrance of the end of WWI, Beacons of Light will be lit at 7 p.m. on 11th November 2018. In St.Helens a Beacons of Light event will be held starting at 6.45pm on Sunday 11th November 2018 at Taylor Park. The address is: Taylor Park, Grosvenor Road, St Helens WA10 3HXThe event will last no more than 30 minutes and refreshments will be available from the Boathouse cafe afterwards. Ste M

    Norman Harvey VC

    Having spoke to Simon Cousins from the council, he assures me that this isn't the actual Norman Harvey VC statue, but another by the same sculptor called The Haunting. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4088906/Tin-Tommy-s-ready-scrap-20ft-metal-soldier-haunting-reminder-World-War.html He feels confident that the Newton and Earlestown team will have the correct badge ( if the statue has a cap). Anyone seen it yet? Ste M

    Not sure how the badge is fitted but surely not beyond the means of man to get a correct badge and replace it before October? Hope the Lee Enfield has correct deac cert ! ;_)

    Norman Harvey VC

    "The two-metre high statue, capturing the moment just after the action that won him the honour" for £100,000 you would think it would be accurate?

    Vulcan War Memorial

    Hi Jeff, it is in there but the photo I took is awful, reflections and light everywhere. I'll have to try again when I'm up that way.
  10. Hi all Has anyone got a picture of the vulcan works memorial ? I have managed to save a trio being split on Ebay to a George Green who worked there and, I would assume, be on the memorial. He served with South Lancs and RFC/RAF. He survived and lived in Earlestown and his mum was from Clock Face. Cheers Ste M

    That's strange, I removed then reloaded it but when I go anywhere off the home page I get "Error 503 : Service Temporarily Unavailable"
