VE Day 75

By psmiddy, May 9 2020 10:29AM

A day late - sorry.

Yesterday I was sent by a cousin some photos taken near his home. The monument is for 2 Halifax crews of 578 Sqn. All 14 men perished in a mid-air collision only a few miles before regaining their home base of RAF Burn, after a raid on an industrial site in the Rhine Valley. Four other aircraft were lost on that raid.

Lest We Forget.
