The plaque is next to memorials for two world wars
A soldier who died almost 60 years ago is being honoured in his Devon home town.
Private David Hamson, from Sidmouth, was killed in the Korean War in 1951, aged 20.
Now a plaque bearing his name has been put up in his memory at St Giles and St Nicholas Parish Church.
Space has been left on the memorial so names of other people from the town involved in future conflicts can be added.
David O'Connor of the Royal British Legion, Sidmouth, said: "I first heard of David Hamson three years ago, but there was no memorial in Sidmouth for him.
David Hamson's death has been recognised in his parish church
"That's a shame because in the parish church here there are three memorial plaques.
"Our servicemen and women ought to be remembered."
The plaque has been put up next to memorials for World War I and World War II.
Most of the cost of the £1,200 plaque has been paid for with donations from the town council and the Sid Vale Association.
Church warden Frank Eul said: "Putting this plaque up for the Korean war demonstrates the futility of war.
"I would like to see that plaque remain with just one name."
