Message for any USAAF Veterans stationed at Glatton (near Conington) England during WW2

It was announced in our local newspaper that a new memorial for the 457th Bombardier Group, US Army Air Force is to be erected just off the Great North Road (A1) near Conington in time for the 60th anniversary D-Day landings celebrations.

If any veterans would like a photograph of the memorial, please let me know. I have a digital camera, which means I can forward the photo as an e-mail attachment.

Either post here or e-mail me at [email protected] - and thanks for all your past efforts, freedom is worth fighting for.

This won't be of service to me (my dad served at the 22nd General Hospital in Blandford during WWII, however--we're planning a trip back there), but I just want to say that your post is wonderful, Andrew, and your sentiments very much appreciated!

Another reason why I love the UK--the people!

Andrew, may I pass you post along to an email list used by many flight enthusiasts?
