On July 24th 1945 a fighter belonging to 441 Sqn was seen to plunge directly into the ground within a scrap yard off Clough Road in Hull. There was several witnesses to the accident and they all said that that the Pilot must have struggled with the controls as he narrowly missed a School where School Children were playing and Chimney that was in the process of being erected with three men on top of it. His Valour saved many lives and we pay tribute to this Canadian Pilot here today.  Always remembered, never forgotten, LEST WE FORGET.
