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!
