Upgraded Memorial to the crew of B 17G #44-6133 at Allhallows Holiday Park, Allhallows, Kent. March 2020.
A border of Oyster Shells has been added, along with some driftwood, all collected from the beach in front of the memorial. This was done to symbolize the aircraft's final resting place, which is on the tidal mudflats some 500 yards or so in front of the memorial plaque.
The memorial was originally raised by Mitch Peeke in June of 2019 and unveiled jointly by two relatives of two of the crew: Jeanne Cronis-Campbell, daughter of the Bombardier; and Noel Tognazzini, nephew of the Flight Engineer/Top Turret Gunner.
