Description

The deck gun of UB 91 was presented to the town of Chepstow to honour William Charles Williams, a native of Chepstow, who was awarded a posthumous Victoria Cross for his service in the Royal Navy at Gallipoli. The town’s cenotaph and gun were unveiled in January 1922 by Mrs Francis Smith, sister of William Williams. Trevor Williams and other relatives of William Charles Williams are shown here alongside Chepstow’s unique war memorial.
