George Cross Citation from the London Gazette of 11 March 1941

In November 1940 Sergeant Lewin was the captain of an aircraft which began to sink shortly after taking off on a bombing mission. It crashed into a hillside and burst into flames. Sergeant Lewin and three of his crew of four got free, but the second pilot was trapped. Despite a cracked kneecap and severe contusions on the face and legs, the Sergeant crawled under the blazing wing, in which full petrol tanks were burning, and dragged and carried the pilot to a hole in the ground some 40 yards from the aircraft, where he lay on him just as the bombs exploded. This superbly gallant deed was performed in the dark under most difficult conditions, and in the certain knowledge that the bombs and petrol tanks would explode.

PALMER

Stanley Arthur
Leading Airman FX673631, H.M.S. Nightjar, Royal Navy. Died 12th May 1945. Aged 20. Son of Arthur James Palmer and Edith Mary Palmer, of Kettering. Buried in LONDON ROAD CEMETERY, KETTERING. Row NN. Grave 6.

Stan Palmer, son of Arthur and Edith Palmer, lived in Shelley Road and went to Kettering Central School where he was considered to be an above average pupil. He joined The Royal Navy, the Fleet Air Arm to be exact, and was based at HMS Nightjar, a shore based station in near Elswick, Lancashire, on the Fylde coast. He was on anti-submarine work and had been recommended for promotion to Petty officer. He was killed in a flying accident over the Isle of Man on 12 May 1945, flying in a Fairey Barracuda bomber. The crew of three, including Stan, were all killed, 4 days after the war ended. He was 20 years old. Stan is buried in Kettering’s London Road Cemetery. At his funeral Bandmaster Munn spoke of Stanley's outstanding qualities, concluding with an appeal addressed especially to the younger members of the band - those at home as well as away - to endeavour to follow in his footsteps, and by their enthusiasm in the cause of the Army -"which Stanley dearly loved-to help make up for his loss.The following article is taken from the Salvation Army Kettering Citadel Band monthly Bulletin for bandsmen serving in the military:Alas, our first Bulletin after the VE Issue on a note of sadness, and it is with deepest regret that we report the death of Stanley Palmer killed on Saturday May 12th 1945 in a flying accident. Stan had passed for promotion to Petty Officer. Mrs. A.E. Munn wrote: Somehow we had never thought of Stanley as "being the first of our service lads to make the Supreme sacrifice, We shall miss him very much, also his pleasing smile, but our loss is his gain, we have no shadow of doubt about this. Stanley was a good lad, true to his principles, and his letters to the Bandmaster gave clear testimony to the fact that he was assuredly one of God's children, quite ready for the Home-call, sudden though it was. Mr. Russell, Headmaster Central School said: "Stanley was a pupil of the Kettering Central School from 1936 to 1940. His career at school proved that he possessed a first class brain. Had he been spared, it is certain he would have gone far, a fact well evident in his rapid progress in so short a time in the Fleet Air Arm. The School mourns with his parents the loss of a fine Centralian". His Fleet Air Arm mess-mates wrote to his parents: "I am writing on behalf of the Telegraphist-Air-Gunners in this Mess, who offer you both their deepest sympathy at the loss of your son Stanley. There are two or three of us who have been with him since our Vincent days and we got to know him very well indeed, so his passing came as a great shock when we heard the news yesterday. Both at Yarmouth, Novia Scotia and in the States, Stan proved the top lad of the course, and he was respected by us all for the way he upheld his religion wherever we have been stationed. (R.W, Miller. Leading-Airman). The funeral took place on Thursday morning and was a worthy turn-out. The band was practically 100% plus Joe Loveridge, Albert Batts, Cecil Caiger, John Ogilvie and Cliff Broom, who came to pay their respects on behalf of the servicemen and women. The service in the Hall, conducted by Major Beadle, was very impressive, quite a crowd of people assembled to pay their tribute. The cortege, headed by the Band, proceeded to the London Road Cemetery where again a large number of people had gathered. We feel sure the hearts of unbelievers must have been stirred as the march passed along the streets, One of the things which seemed a silent tribute of his follow bandsman was the salute they each gave as they filed past the open grave. Most of those present I am sure, writes Bandmaster Munn, gave themselves afresh to God for service in the Army which Stanley loved so well. At the request of the parents the band played "The Pilgrim’s Prayer in the Hall and at the Graveside - 'Rest'.
