About the memorial: Eric Spencer Jones, Lieutenant, 264500, East Lancashire Regiment. Eric was the son of Evan and Margaret L. Jones, of Newcastle Emlyn. He was an Exhibitioner of Keble College, Oxford prior to the war, and after his commission served with the 8th Battalion, East Lancashire Regiment. Eric was attached to the Attended 144th Royal Armoured Corps for the Invasion of Normandy. Eric landed at Normandy with the unit on D-Day plus 3, and fought through the epic battles of Normandy, where they came up against the Waffen SS Panzer Unit ‘Schwere SS-Panzer-Abteilung 101’, commanded by Michael Wittman. The famous Panzer Commander was killed during this engagement at Hill 122. Eric survived Normandy, and fought through France into Belgium and Holland with the Division. In December 1944 the Germans launched a desperate attack in the Ardennes, known as the Battle of the Bulge, and British Units were rushed to plug the gaps in the lines of the US Forces in the area. Eric was killed in action during the Battle of the Bulge, on 13 January 1945, aged just 22, and is buried at Hotton War Cemetery, Belgium.
