About the memorial: Village Green- 2002 Another memorial to this same aeroplane crash is to be found on the village green, almost opposite the village hall. This too was placed there by the Lincolnshire Aircraft Recovery Group or LARG for short in the spring of 2002, in a rose garden planted by the same organisation. The village green plaque was made of engraved plastic so that it could stand the weather and could easily be replaced if vandalised. Since then the memorial has been improved, the plastic board replaced.
