Widecombe Chuch House was packed on the night of 12th Nov with over 50 people coming from across Devon to hear John Lowe talk about the Hameldown Boys- the airmen who crashed on Hameldown during the second world war.
John’s talk followed his extraordinary journey as he researched into the crash, discovered more about the young men who died, met relatives and witnesses. It turned out that his interest was all sparked by a chance encounter with the memorial stone on Hameldown on a navigation exercise!
He also was able to share some of the details of the latest piece of the investigation as he unveiled a summary of the geophysics survey results, indicating the location of the crash, which we had been able to support through Moor than meets the eye.
Johns aim is to keep the memory of these young men alive and his passion and enthusiasm for this took the audience along with him and is a fitting tribute.
