28th May 2017
On this date members of the 550 Squadron Assocation visited Lichtervelde to take part in the unveiling of a new Memorial to the crew of LL810, laying a wreath on behalf of 550 Squadron and RAF North Killingholme Association.
British and Belgium Civil and Military dignitaries took part, and wreaths were laid on behalf of the Government of Australia.
Our thanks to the people of Lichtervelde/St Niklass for their hospitality and the wonderful efforts they have made to remember the crews who failed to return home to North Killingholme.
