The Loss of Lancaster JA691

The memorial stone

The events of that night in August 1943 affected the local people greatly. It was decided to erect a memorial stone near to the crash site and on 5th May 1949 the stone was unveiled.


The picture shows the large crowd that gathered for the ceremony. The lady bending forward and the man reaching out are Bob Slaughter's mother and father.
