The Home Front Museum, Llandudno alongside Penmaenmawr Museum have been raising to money to either refurbish or replace the memorial at the site of the 1944 Bachelor's Baby air crash on Moelfre hill above Penmaenmawr.

Five American airmen and their mascot, a terrier called Booster, were killed when their B-24 Liberator bomber crashed on 7th January 1944. A slate memorial was erected in 1980 but has become worn and difficult to read over years and so it has been removed from the mountain for inspection by a local stone mason. An online appeal has raised over £600 and it is hoped to have the memorial re-instated in time for the 75th anniversary of the crash in January 2019.
