A memorial stone to remember the ten US Air Corps men who died in a plane crash in Northamptonshire during World War Two was officially unveiled in November  2010.  Helmdon Parish council agreed to install the memorial, which is shaped like an open book, 66 years after ten American servicemen lost their lives in a crash in Astwell, near Brackley.  The stone, costing £500, was paid for by the US Air Force and will now be incorporated into  official Remembrance Day ceremonies in Helmdon.

NOTE:  In the church of St Mary Magdalene there is a memorial tablet commemorating the same event (and giving a transcription of names)
