View Full Version : Llanyre Crash Memorial
Llanyre - 388th BG Plaque
The above photographs were sent to me by a chap that I've been corresponding with for years, his brother was killed aboard a Lancaster returning to Fiskerton after a raid in Germany. I have just found the newspaper copy shown below that he sent me at the time.
I took some pictures for the UKNIWM today.
