Sadly the memorial looks unkempt and the plaque has been slightly damaged . It sits at the junction of McMullen Road and Allington Way and was dedicated on 6 May 1986 by the then Mayor of Darlington Councillor Joe Anderson. In 1946 and in recognition of William Bill McMullen's bravery Lingfield Lane was renamed McMullen Road in his honour. In recent years there has been an increase in the interest shown to the memorial and the memory of Bill McMullen and remembrance services are now held on 13 January, the anniversary of the Lancaster crash which are supported by local townsfolk and 405 (Darlington) Squadron ATC.
