Description

Memorials to Newport Scouts who died in the Great War and World War II.

The Great War Memorial was unveiled and dedicated 9th November 1920. The Second World War Memorial was designed to match the Great War memorial since both are the same size (approx 14 in wide by 24 in high), and made of painted and carved wood. The Memorials were originally in the Scout Headquarters at Holyrood Street, and moved to the new Scout Headquarters off St John's Road in 1971.

Joe Hall was killed in France, 1916
Joe Dore [H W Dore] was killed near Ypres, June 8th [1917], and his grave is at Lissenthoek, Belgium. He is quoted as having a "dry chuckle and quiet ways" and an utterly loyal and loveable nature.
