Halifax L9489 of 35 Squadron was shot down by 'friendly fire' whilst returning from it' first operational sortie on the night of 10 March 1941. This plaque is dedicated with gratitude to the memory of those who died on this spot: names and to those who survived but have since died: names 'Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends'
