AS WE REMEMBER the fallen on Armistice day, we share an image of the the beautiful tribute at Llanelian Road Cemetery, which contains four war graves from the First and Second Wars.

In 2016 players and officials of the club laid a wreath on one of the War graves – marking the 100th anniversary of Flight Sergeant Ewell Daniell’s death on November 3rd 1916.

He had arrived in the UK as a volunteer from Winnipeg in Canada, and married a local Old Colwyn girl in 1915.

He flew with the 19th Squadron of the Royal Flying Corps who flew over enemy lines to take crucial reconnaissance photographs and drop over 290 tons of bombs.

He died aged 26 whilst on a training exercise in Yorkshire and his body was returned to north Wales for a full military funeral. 

The Living Memory Project, a joint campaign between the Football Association and the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) marked the 100th anniversary of the ending of the Battle of the Somme, one of the bloodiest of World War One.
