World War 2 - Detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Colin Corlett 2008

There is memorial to the airmen killed in World War 2 when their planes crashed in the Cheviot Hills. It's a lonely setting in the College Valley and vert atmospheric. The laminated A4 sheet was left in memory by a couple of Dutch families who have memories of the contribution that these airmen made 60 plus years ago. See Colin Corlett's Blog
