Last week Liz and I had a pub lunch at The Star Inn, Pershore.We went there deliberately in order to see The Brandy Cask Hotel (as it was known in 1943) which was next door,and was hit by a Wellington Bomber in 1943. On the 29th May 1943 during Pershore's Wings for Victory and fund raising activities,an organised fly past was arranged by the Commander of RAF Pershore in which 11 Wellington Bomber crews took part. F/O. G. S. Hynam DFC (RCAF) and Sgt. P.E. Zoeller (RAF) were piloting Wellington X3704 and 3 ground crew had gone along for the ride- Corporal H.Allen, Aircraftsmen G.R.Band and W.A.Garvell. The Starboard wing fell off, taking the engine with it.Control of the aircraft was lost and it crashed into the back garden of the Brandy Cask Hotel (now private apartments,see photos.) The plane burst into flames and all 5 crew members perished. Later after repairs to the hotel, It was clamied one of propellers from the Wellington Bomber was attached to the back wall of the hotel as a memorial to the crash.During my visit there, I was unable to view the rear wall due to a 20ft high brickwall spanning the whole length of the garden. F/O.G.S. Hynam and Sgt. P.E.Zoeller were buried at Pershore Cemetery with full military honours. Graham.
