About the memorial: Plaque to the memory of Flying Officer Leslie Francis Brewer of 1667 HCU Squadron, which left Faldingworth in Halifax EB152 on a Bullseye sortie, It is believed the Halifax entered the London Defensive Zone, after which all contact was lost. In the absence of any wreckage, but with the knowledge of enemy air activity occurring shortly after the Halifax was due to leave the area, the investigating panel summarised their report as follows (1) enemy action, (ii) friendly anti-aircraft fire, (iii) icing that may have rendered the aircraft's altimeter inoperable. Bomber Command Losses, Vol 8, page 84.
