One of Welshpool’s war heroes made a moving trip to the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire to pay his respects to those he served alongside and others who lost their lives securing our freedom.

Ted Jones M.M., aged 98, travelled with colleagues from the Welshpool Branch of the Royal Welch Fusiliers Comrades to the Museum for the Burma Star Association annual meeting.

Whilest there though he took the opportunity to lay a wreath at the Royal Welsh Memorial, which is a memorial for all the Welsh infantry Regiments.

The wreath was laid by Sandra Watson and Kim Simister, who are the daughters of the late Harold Jones, who was also a Burma Star Veteran.
