Westborough RAF / RAAF memorial


  • ady longmate 07-November-2015 17:19:07

    Hi I am the person who along with permission from my friend who's field the Lancaster crashed in put this memorial up and had it made. It is on the tree where the Lancaster came to rest but it actually crashed in the field that the memorial is facing. Hopefully by the time the next anniversary of the crash comes around we will have the new permanent memorial finished and we can have a ceremony if the people from the village allow this. This is close to my heart as I have friends who's parents were dam busters and people seem to forget how brave all the crews were from all squadrons. Many thanks Ady longmate
