Memorial Dedication Day – 5 June 2021

Wonderful day for a little celebration to dedicate the new RAF North Creake Memorial. Yesterday was magical, to have Bernie How – a Flight Engineer of 199 Squadron based here 1944-45 including taking part in D-Day (the first operation from RAF North Creake) to cut the ribbon on the Roll of Honour 77 years later was very special indeed. He was deservedly thanked by all for his role in defeating the evil of fascism. The Stirling sculpture – ‘Home Safe’ is dedicated to all those who served at the station, while the Roll of Honour details all those 73 men who died. They gave their tomorrow so that we could have our today.Covid has delayed the project little and curbed the size of the celebration originally planned, nevertheless it was a very specially day. Thanks to all who have helped make this project a reality. We were only able to have 30 people with us on the day (all of whom were instrumental in getting this project off the ground) but the community who have contributed their time and lent support is so much greater.With special thanks to The Assembly House for an amazing afternoon tea and Beeston Brewery for the beer.#TimetoRemember #LestWeForget #wewillrememberthem Andy Knighton SculpturesWalsingham AbbeyHolkham HallBlack Dog Computer Services Ltd
