War Memorial - Gosforth
The Parish Council has been looking into improving the appearance of the memorial and part of that process has been the investigation of whether the list of the fallen which is displayed in St Mary’s Church is accurate, as it shows only names from the 1st and 2nd World Wars, and there have been numerous conflicts since. Information received from the Ministry of Defence reveals that a Gosforth-born soldier – Lt. William Horace Hobson - lost his life in Suez on 30th January 1952. (He is unrelated to Des Hobson from Ellerslie Park).
Accordingly the Parish Council seeks information from anyone who can recall the family with the objective of gaining their agreement to updating the existing list and how that should be done. If anyone has any information will they please contact The Clerk at the address below.
