Lest we forget


At 23.15 on the night of 18 July 1942, a Vickers Wellington IC, Serial N2749, of 27 Operational training Unit at R.A.F. Lichfield, took off on a cross country training run towards the Irish Sea. At 03.08 hours on the following morning, Milford Haven Coastguard reported an aircraft firing three red Verey lights, and was obviously in distress, with only one engine running. The aircraft attempted a forced landing at Milford Haven, but crashed into the Fish Docks, killing all six members of her crew.
