About the memorial: Children of a northern Lincolnshire school are planting a gum tree to commemorate an Australian air crew who lost their lives in the Second World War. The crew died when their Lancaster bomber came down in Laughton Forrest, near to the present site of Laughton Endowed Church of England School. The school already has a Millennium Wood and pupils at the school will take part in a competition to decide who will plant the tree. It was donated by the Forestry Commission, which is also donating a plaque to go with it. The planting ceremony will take place on Monday, at 10.30am on Forestry Cottages Road in Laughton Forest.
