Lest We Forget In memory of the Polish Airmen who lost their lives here flying a Vickers Wellington XI HZ251 on September 23rd 1943. 7 names. The Fallen. They have passed beyond the stress and storm of mortal strife through the gateways of the morning to a wider life asking only this of us that we with faith and pride remember in the after years the things for which they died. Patience Strong
