Memorial, Loud Terrace, Stanley, Durham

This memorial stone to Pilot Officer Joyce was put up by local people in 1919. It was restored and rededicated in 1950. The inscription reads 'It was here that Pilot Officer Joyce met his death on the night of March 13 1918'. The obelisk has a carving of the arms of the Royal Flying Corps which was the forerunner of the RAF. A second inscription, on the lower step, commemorates Sergeant Observer Joyce, his son, who died in 1940. Many families lost men in both world wars.
