A monument was built for the five victims of a World War Two aeroplane crash in 1941 involving two Spitfires which had collided in Mount Pleasant. One of  the aircraft hit a house, which resulted in five deaths: the two Canadian Pilots Sergt Pilot Louis Goldberg, Sergt Pilot Gerald Manuel and three of the occupants of the house; namely mother Alice Cox and her two daughters Evelyn and Doreen. The Husband James Llewellyn Cox was in bed when the plane crashed into the front of the house, the impact threw him and the bed through a rear window on to some soft earth at the back of the house. He was uninjured but suffered shock.
