Plaque in Sidmouth church marks 1951 death of soldier

Breaking News

A soldier who died almost 60 years ago is being honoured in his Devon home town.

Private David Hamson, from Sidmouth, was killed in the Korean War in 1951, aged 20.

Now a plaque bearing his name has been put up in his memory at St Giles and St Nicholas Parish Church.

Space has been left on the memorial so names of other people from the town involved in future conflicts can be added.
