Lance Corporal Allan Leonard Lewis VC

Recommended Posts

Friday 21 September 2018

100 years ago Allan was killed in action during WW1 and as a result of his bravery was awarded the Victoria Cross. He is the only Herefordshire born person to have been awarded a VC

This Friday there will be two events to commemorate Allan.

At 10.00am in the Lady Arbour Garden at Hereford Cathedral a plaque will be dedicated in his honour.

At 11.00am at the Old Market shopping centre a statue of Allan will be unveiled.

Please try and take some time out to attend these events.

For info - The Statue will be located the Widemarsh St end of The Old Market .

Unable  to attend the Cathedral Service but will certainly be at the unveiling.

I just hope that the statue is higher than it looks under the cloth that covers it as it looks to be around 4ft tall.

Well done to all involved . I sincerely hope that the Statue is treated with the respect it deserves by passing pedestrians. I also hope that it will be covered by good CCTV.
