Government salutes war research

Adrian Hughes, one of our most avid contributors, has won a Welsh Government prize for his research on the ...

Llandudno men who died in the Second World War. The competition was open to anyone who uses local archives. Many of the stories which Adrian - who runs the Home Front museum in Llandudno - has unearthed at the Conwy county archives have been, or will be, the subjects of "In memory" pages on HistoryPoints.org - which you can access by scanning our QR codes by Llandudno war memorial and clicking the soldier icons in the Second World War lists. Here are Adrian's texts on RAF navigator William Ernest Williams and on Thomas Verner Parke, one of a group of Royal Navy pilots who fought in the Battle of Britain alongside the RAF. Our congratulations to Adrian.
