WW1 cemetery story: Sergeant's suicide in Pembroke Dock

One quiet corner of Pembrokeshire is the last resting place for 75 men who served in two world wars.

But what makes the graveyard at Pembroke Dock so unique, is that it is believed to be Wales' only dedicated war cemetery.

Owen Vaughan has spent years researching gravestones right across Pembrokeshire, mainly of servicemen who died between the wars, and is soon to have a book published about the military cemetery.

He reads out the story of one of the men buried there.

Sgt Herbert Stokes, 26, was stationed at Pembroke and took his own life with an Army rifle after serving nine years.
