Remembering US Army Air Corps Alongside The Fallen Of Helmdon
After discussions with the Church and the US Air Force, the Parish Council has placed an order to commission an additional memorial stone to remember the 10 US Air Corps men who were killed at Astwell Castle Farm in a plane crash in 1943.
The memorial will be separate from the current one, situated at ground level and be in the form of an open book. All costs will be reimbursed by the US Air Force.
The new memorial will name all those killed in the crash and will be in place for the Remembrance Service on 8th November. It is hoped that some of the families of the airmen will be present at this service.
