About the memorial: The Beaulieu housing estate in Springfield, Chelmsford UK has commemorated members of the armed services who gave their lives in World War I, by way of road signs detailing their unit and the date they were lost. Erected in 2020, "WRIGHT CRESCENT" commemorates my Great Uncles: Private Ernest Wright MM, and Private Herbert G Wright. Ernest Wright was awarded the Military Medal (MM) for rescuing an injured young drummer boy whilst under enemy fire. He left a wife and six children. His brother Herbert was unmarried. Both are commemorated on the War Memorial at St Mary the Virgin Church, Boreham Road, Great Leighs, Essex.
