5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, I could not put it down., 6 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cockleshell Heroes (Pan Grand Strategy Series) (Paperback)
Reading my local delivered free paper Stockport Times East April 7, 2011, I discovered that James Conway - one of the heroes was in fact from Stockport, Cheshire.

He was a Co-op milkman who freely admitted he talked to his horse. I am just old enough to remember milk being delivered by a horse. These clever animals would watch the milkman go up somebody's path and they would set off till the next stopping place and wait there for the milkman to catch up.

James Conway had joined up on the same day as the brother-in-law of the man who was pictured in the paper actually reading this book.

This book should be required reading for teenagers in our schools.

The book lit a light in my head and I searched on the internet and found out about the new memorial in France. I found his parents on the 1911 census in Heaton Norris.

James Conway's name is on the Plymouth Naval Memorial Panel 102 Col.3

I am not well enough to visit the war memorial at Stockport Art Gallery but his name is listed there too under Navy and Royal Marines.

Everyone reads names on memorials but they should remember behind each name is a story and some more heroic stories than others.
