About the memorial: F/O Hunt, killed in a flying accident on 19/02/55. 49 Sqn Lincoln SX984 was returning to its base at Eastleigh Kenya, following an Op against the Mau Mau uprising. As the aircraft approached the airfield, it commenced a series of unauthorised low passes over a local Police Station. Tragically on its last pass, it struck a fence, entered a steep vertical climb, before it inevitably stalled and crashed at Githunguri. All the crew and four locals on the ground were killed in the tragedy. See Link. This is one of a very few number of memorials to Lincolns (and crews) lost in Bomber Command service.
