All

The headstone of Private John williams VC, who is buried at Llantarnum Church Gwent, has weathered badly over the years and is due to be replaced in January. There will be a brief graveside ceremony.

The service is scheduled to start at 0930hrs (Saturday 19 Jan 2013)

There will be a brief talk (3 - 4 mins) by Capt (Retd) Lew Freeman, the Chairman of the John Williams (Fielding) VC Memorial Trust on "The John Williams (Fielding) Memorial trust and the new grave memorial"

This will be followed by another brief talk (8mins or so) by Bill Cainan the Curator of the Regimental Museum Brecon on "Pte John Williams VC - a local man and national hero"

Concluded by a short talk (3-4 mins) by the Rt Hon Paul P Murphy MA AM, Member of Parliament for Torfaen on "Our Proud Community".

The Colour Party of the 1879 Group will be in attendance.

Can't be there to attend this unfortunately, but I am sure it will all go swimmingly.
Could you post up a photo or two Bill after the event?

The headstone ceremony has been cancelled due to the weather conditions. Hopefully Bill will let us know when a new date has been agreed.

Well, no point going ahead with the service if many of those people who want to attend can't make the journey! Salute
