Remembering on this day 1942

Postby muckaroon1960 » Tue Dec 08, 2015 1:00 pm

I have posted these details before on the old forum but thought I would update this year.
After seeing children in the news adopting service men's graves, I have done the same in remembering on this day the crew of Wellington Bomber DV425 of 21OTU RAF Moreton in Marsh. Crashed at Tidmington, Nr Shipston on Stour, Warwickshire the night of 7th/8th December whilst undertaking night time flight training.
All 3 crew perished in the crash.
412070 Sjt L A McGuire. RAAF.
1219728 Sjt V T Drew RAVR.
1332125 Sjt C E Raggett RAVR.

I visited the cemetery at Moreton in Marsh and put flowers on Sjt McGuires grave. Also went to the crash site Sunday to place a memorial cross near to the crash site.

Lest We Forget.

Made my annual pilgrimage to Moreton in Marsh cemetery today and also put a memorial cross near to where Wellington Bomber DV425 crashed. While there I noticed someone had placed 3 poppies on a tree..1 for each of the air crew. Nice to know they're not forgotten.

Nice tribute Mucka, the fact that you actually go and place a cross at this lonely spot, shows people do/will remember these "forgotten" Airmen.

Top man :thumbsup:

Did my annual pilgrimage to the crash site today. My cross from last year was still there although well weathered. Placed a fresh one on the tree. 3 new poppies also been placed there recently.
