Mike Weston would like to thank everybody that attended the commemoration service for 207 squadron W4938 EM.
A lost with all crew on the 13th May 1943 was the bomb aimer Thomas Skelton (19) was newly married to Dorothy Ware and she wanted a memorial erected to 207 which subsequently happened 1994.
Without Dorothy or the late Roland Gale, owner of the airfield, the memorial may never had happened. This was my reason for having this particular dedication.
So by belief was that this crew deserves to be remembered and in doing so Dorothy, Roland and all those that were instrumental and served on the committee.
I believe that the late Gordon Spence and myself has confidence this site is now in the safe hands of Langar and Barnstone Parish Council.
I have to thank the Parish Council in particular Cllr Brown, his workforce and Borough Councillors for their contribution to the new seat and refurbishment of the information board.
On Saturday 13th May standards were held by both Langar and Harby British Legions, the parade directed by Peter Hackett and a service and act of remembrance by the Rev. Fred Connell.
The highlight of the day was a display by the BBMF Lancaster which was delayed by an hour due to cloud cover.
A fitting tribute to the crew of Lancaster W4938.
It’s the 30th anniversary of the memorial next year, I’ve done my bit but it would be nice to see something!

A new defibrillator has been installed in the porch at St. Andrew’s porch, between Church Lane and Langar Hall. It is funded jointly by the Church and Langar Hall.
Other public ones are in the phone boxes in Langar and in Barnstone and in many other places, maybe also some private ones. Emergency services can bring them. A defibrillator restarts a heart in a case of cardiac arrest / no pulse but the machines can tell whether that is the case.
If you ever need one, call 999 and they will tell you where the nearest one is, how to unlock the defibrillator with any accessories and what to do. Ideally it takes at least one person to attend to the patient, giving CPR and another person to fetch the defibrillator. It really needs continuous use of a mobile phone (preferably hands free) to stay in contact with 999. The defibrillator must be with the patient within 3 or 4 minutes and then it will give you instructions.
It is worth knowing a little about what to do if you find someone unconscious, with no pulse or unable to breath. This might avoid panic and save a life but the 999 call and the machine will guide you. There are online guides (I’ll try to give a link to one) and short training sessions to use before you face a real situation. Learn the basics of CPR to keep the patient’s blood flowing if their heart has stopped.
I cannot give proper advice but it is important to:
