This is the documentary I was talking about - Bill Sparks is a true war hero, and to think he lived on the island is an honour. I heard about the plaque and if it goes through that would be great!

Something will be done Liam. It probably will not be a blue plaque as he lived at two different addresses. I will keep you posted.
