Mural in his home town to rear admiral Sir Edward Bingham, OBE, born in Bangor and recipient of the Victoria Cross (featured in the apex of the roof) for service in WWI.
This mural is adjacent to Red Hand Commando “red fist” mural, featured previously.
The context shot, below, shows the two together, as viewed through the uprights of a community monument just across the road, featuring old photographs and documenting the history of the local community.
This mural is almost unique in having a house window in the middle of it. Here is one other example.
