In Thankfulness to God and in proud and loving memory of our Son Pilot Officer Henry Hetley Pearson, of Bramcote, aged 21 years, who gave his life for his King and Country whilst piloting a Whitley Bomber over Holland on the night of August 16th/17th, 1941. He worshipped in this place. His body, with those of his crew of four, lies at Martinslinde, Ryckhoven, Near Liege, Belgium. “They shall grow not old as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them nor the years condemn, At the going down of the Sun, and in the morning, We will remember them.”
