About the memorial: 1657 HCU Stirling EF352 XT-U had departed Stradishall at 1745 on 22/10/43 for a long-range night NAVEX with an extended training crew of; Pilot, Flight Engineer, 3 x Navigators, Bomb Aimer, Wirless Operator and 2 Air Gunners. All was well until for unknown reasons the aircraft flew into the ground at Rosemaund Farm, Preston Wynne, Herefordshire. All the crew were killed. All bar one of this crew had survived a serious accident just 19 days previously at Earls Colne, when 1657 HCU Stirling W6383 attempted to take off at 2120, it developed a swing, left the runway and the undercarriage subsequently collapsed, completely wrecking the aircraft
