My interest in St Andrews Park is that my grandfather died there on April 30th 1941 when the Wellington Bomber he was in crashed there. I researched the crash some years ago and found out loads of information and now have a web site about the crash - www.wellingtont2905.co.uk

John,

No I didn't see the link on your website on how to donate.........my view is

that a separate Fund is constituted specifically for the Welsh Slate

Memorial stone.........I do not wish to contribute to anything else...........

I am not sure what the Fund Target is , or how much it is estimated that

the Welsh Slate stone will cost & engraving & the Service but whatever

it is.........I feel sure that we could raise it in St Andrews

My Email address is doug@reid.uk.com if you want to discuss further.

David Cemlyn & Jenny Morriss have been organising the Event.........

& I'm not sure how they're getting on with Heritage Funding?

However.........I feel sure that the Evening Post & the RAF would cover any

shortfall for their fallen comrades?

All the Best,

Doug Reid
