Memorial to the Guyzance Tragedy
Memorial to the Guyzance Tragedy
On January 17, 1945, ten soldiers drowned while taking part in a military exercise at Guyzance, on the River Coquet, in Northumberland. The river was in full flood and their boat was swept over the weir and capsized. The men, all aged 18, were weighed down by full combat gear and drowned. In 1995, a memorial service was held to mark the 50th anniversary of the tragedy and a plaque was erected, which now stands in the way of a re-development.
