About a year ago I was reminded about an aircraft which had crashed close to the village of Hindolveston, Norfolk where I live. Knowing that there was no memorial or plaque in the village, I had assumed that there had been no fatalities. However after a little research I found a very different story. Wellington BK440. First served with No. 426 (B) Squadron, R.C.A.F. coded 'OW-V'. Flew attack at Wilhelmshaven February 24/25, 1943. Attacked 5 times by Ju 88, resulting in a large hole in the fuselage. Flew attack at Essen March 12/13, 1943. Attacked by fighter, no damage. Flew attack on Kiel April 4/5, 1943. Attacked by single engine fighter, no damage. Transferred to RAF Little Horwood, 26 operational training unit. (OTU). Code EU-? On the 11th December 1943, Wellington BK440 took off from RAF Little Horwood, 26 O.T.U. detailed to carry out a navigation training sortie, and crashed near Park Farm, Hindolveston, eight miles E.S.E. of Fakenham in Norfolk. All the crew were killed. Crew: RAF Flt Sgt A Merridew, Captain (Pilot) RAF Sgt S Wilson, (Navigator) RAAF Flt Sgt N Doherty, (Bomb Aimer) RAF Sgt E W Brown, (Wireless Air Gunner) RCAF Sgt W E Martin, (Air Gunner) RCAF Sgt A W Ellis, (Air Gunner) Five of the crew were buried on the 16th Dec in the Cambridge City cemetery, Cambridgeshire, UK. The Cemetery is known locally as the Newmarket Road Cemetery. Sgt E W Brown is buried in the Rushden Cemetery, Northamptonshire, UK. Now I found it strange that a village that lost 15 men in WW1 and every Remembrance Sunday would commemorate them. Yet it appeared that very few people knew about these brave men. So rightly or wrongly in the way I have done it, I decided to bring it to their attention. At midnight last night I erected these signs outside my house. With the result. Hopefully in the future there will be a memorial to these brave boys. Thanks to those who have helped me with information, to create this display. Drew Will post more detailed information later, but have to get out and fix lights on the display and straighten the legs out..
