Anstey Remembers

Thirty three people rose before dawn to attend our 6.45am service of rememberance for the crew of the B17 Flying Fortress, which crashed into Anstey Castle Moat on 15th October 1944. And with them the two other airmen who died on the same mission. We also gave thanks for the miraculous return of another plane from that same mission that had recieved a direct hit in the nose but, against all odds, made it home.

Here is an audio recording of the service
