About the memorial: Located on the wall of the village pharmacy, the eagle was created by Russell Hubbard around 1986 as a memorial to the crew of a Wellington bomber DV771 of 28 OTU that crashed nearby on 25th November 1943. The aircraft departed from RAF Wymeswold at 1905 for a routine night X-C NAVEX. On its return and whilst on finals to land, the Starboard engine caught fire. The Pilot lost control and the aircraft dived into a field and burnt out at 2255. Six crew were killed and two were very seriously injured – one of which died of his injuries on 28/11/43
