Private Owen Hughes Remembered

Private Owen Hughes of Holyhead served with the Westmoreland and Cumberland Yeomanry during WW1 and was lost aged 23 on RMS Leinster when she was torpedoed on the Irish Sea on 10 October 1918. He was travelling home on leave. His body was not recovered for burial.

We are very grateful to Andrew Thomas and his family for allowing their relative’s Memorial Plaque to be put on display at the Holyhead Maritime Museum. Observers can see how well polished it was kept as a treasured reminder of a lost loved one.
