The monument, known locally as the Monument to the “Inglês Morto” (Dead Englishman) is dedicated by his fellow officers to Captain Conway Shipley, Royal Navy, who was killed by the French at Belém on 23 April 1808. It is located beside the Tagus River at Paço de Arcos, in the municipality of Oeiras, just outside Lisbon.
As my husband and I had both served in the Royal Navy for many years we instinctively felt a duty to try and raise awareness of the condition of this monument and to explore ways to have it restored. Having served at NATO for two years previously we started by contacting the local NATO Commander and, through his offices, we were given a contact in the Oeiras Town Council (Câmara de Oeiras).
