Memorial Stone begins its journey

MeMStoneHandOverOn 18 April Gavin and Rosemary Knox took delivery of the memorial stone from Ivett and Reed in Cambridgeshire who have created the stone.  The stone depicts a Wellington Bomber and the course R3236 was on at the time of its crash.  The last signal sent out by the crew it depicted in Morse Code.  There are also oak leaves to represent the forest at Upjever.

The stone has been paid for by the families of the crew members and the cost of installation has been paid for by the German Air Force for which the families are deeply grateful.

 

The Stone will be taken to various locations around Great Britain linked to the crew starting with a service of dedication at Ely Cathedral on Sunday 24 April.   Over 40 members of the crews families will be present when Canon Barber preside over this special service.  Members of the crew families will also be visiting RAF Feltwell, from where R3236 took off on its final mission.
