I have taken photographs of this memorial to the Canadian crew of a wartime Wellington Bomber before. It crashed 2nd January 1944. 74 years on, there was a moving service with our own local blipper Airedale Knitter playing the last post and later Abide with me. A well attended service (probably around 60 or more) gathered by the memorial on the moors above Oakworth.
