About the memorial: Slate tablet (which is now lost) with propellor from Avro Anson AX293 attached, see the IWM record for an image of the memorial. This was originally at RAF Millom (now Haverigg Prison) which closed as an RAF station in 1955. The prison opened in 1967 and part of the overall site became a Museum to RAF Millom. When that museum closed the plinth was lost, but the propellor was moved to Millom Museum.
