About the memorial: On a farm track in middle of a field, the photos are in a tin box fixed to a stile 50 yards to the north where the path joins Bewholme Road. 158 Sqn Halifax HX351 NP-S had departed Lissett at 0016 on 20/02/44 for Ops Leipzig. Tragically, seven minutes later the Halifax crashed into the field at 0023 with the loss of all crew. This was the first of 78 Bomber Command aircraft losses suffered on this Op and it is believed that the Pilot lost control on entering cloud which may have led to tail plane failure but this could not be confirmed in the investigation
