William W Adamson


Flew in B-17F "Miss Carry" and B-17G "I'll Get By".

He wrote a poem which is displayed at St Mary's, Horham:

There is no stone to mark the place
they flew and fought and died that day.

Nay! Nothing but smoke that
lowly drifts away.

Yet, there is a monument to those
valiant young men,

This the grateful thanks that lives in
the hearts of freedom loving men.
