    Default Short Stirling LK276, Great Dunmow.

    Hi could someone please help me find out where in Great Dunmow the memorial dedicated for the crew of Short Stirling LK276 from 190 Squadron is located? And also the location of a memorial bench dedicated in memory of Hugh Holt.

    Heres some information on this website http://www.aircrewremembrancesociety...4/kidgell.html
    but no definate location. Any ideas?

    I believe the memorials are in the grounds of Easton Lodge, I haven't visited so I can't confirm. The memorial bench is in Great DUnmow, adjacent to the road heading north out of the town, again I haven't visited so I couldn't confirm.
