Some photos I have taken of the memorial on several visits to the church over the past few years.

This info has been sent to me;



The accident report stated the crash occurred 1 mile east of AAF Station 144 (Old Buckingham). Roofs of a farmhouse and barns were damaged. Some bombs were recovered by RAF Bomb Disposal at Coldshaw. 17 bombs exploded.

I assume it should be Coltishall, but if not what or where is Coldshaw??

And does anyone happen to know a general area of the crash site?

Thanks
