COMMENT: RAF tragedy must never be forgotten

First published in News

IT is apt that in this year of heightened awareness of our war dead that there will finally be a plaque commemorating the tragic RAF crash of 1941 in Linton Road that killed four people.

Campaigners had been struggling to get the correct spelling of resident Frances Hitchcox for the plaque and so made an appeal to the community for help.

Through word of mouth that tiny yet important detail emerged, meaning the plaque can be unveiled on Sunday.

In the grand history of our world wars and all the sacrifice, the incident may not be writ large but it is important we ensure this tragedy is remembered and passed on to future generations.
