"Thanks for trying Elaine. I live in Sheffield, so it's not easy to get to Bristol library. My uncle, who lives in Tetbury, told me about the photo. I will check with him as to when it appeared."

Wellington T2905

A big thank you to Jenny Morris for organising the 75th anniversary service remembering the crash of Wellington T2905 on 30th April. Apparently the anniversary was featured in the Western Daily Press on Tuesday 26th April and this featured a photo of the wreckage of the plane being guarded. I have searched for years to find any such photo and would love to get hold of a copy of this. I have contacted the Western Daily Press but they have yet to respond. Does anyone have a copy of the Western…See More

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

I am glad that the memorial service took place today and that it was well attended and the sun shone.

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
