I recived a few new photos from a webuser with Reference to Sidney Jones, Able Seaman. He was also Killed in Action on the 18th November 1943. Please have a look at my main site where you will find more information, again if you have any photos from old relatives with reference to H.M.S Chanticleer please get in touch.
On a overnight trip to wales this was the first place we stopped at Chirk Castle a national trust property. The castle is near to the City of Wrexham in Wales and only takes about 2.5 hours from Milton Keynes. The castle was Built is 1295 and it guards the Ceiriog Valley from the English. Due to its high viewpoint you can get some great views over the valley and surrounding countryside. A nice stop of this one if you fancy looking at old castles.
We found this great national trust abbey on the way from Cumbria to Skegness. I’ve seen this place on the tv somewhere so a visit was in order. It was one of the best places I’ve visited in many a year. Please have a look at the photos below.
