About the memorial: SGW remembers F/O A. 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 Stn. 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 Further info here; www.49squadron.co.uk/documents/kenya_crash This is one of a very few number of memorials to Lincolns (and crews) lost in Bomber Command service
