On the Interpretation Board- Newport Parish Council/ This modest brick memorial is to commemorate and remember the twenty civilians/ who lost their lives in an enemy air attack on the town in early April 1943./ "The enemy planes came in from the sea, skimmed the cliffs and opened/ up with their cannon as they approached the town, still flying very low./ Swinging round in a half circle each dropped a bomb and/ then raced away for the coast."/ (local press report 10th April 1943)/ The attack resulted in damage to many buildings with a number of homes destroyed,/ as symbolised by this simple brick memorial./ The fatalities were in Chapel Street, Clarence Road, West Street and on this very site./ The name of each individual who lost their life is incribed on this memorial./ Julie Jones-Evans, Chairman of Newport Parish Council, April 2016.
