550 Squadron Commemoration May 2016
25th May 2016
On this date members of the 550 Squadron Assocation visited Rebecq to take part in the Commemorations at the Memorial with the Rebecq Memorial Assocation, laying a wreath on behalf of 550 Squadron and RAF North Killingholme Association.
British and Belgium Civil and Military dignitaries took part, and local school children read out the names of the crew and deported villagers and placed crosses in memory of both the aircrew and local villagers who lost their lives as a consequence of the air-crash.
Our thanks to the people of Rebecq for their hospitality and the wonderful efforts they have made to remember the crews who failed to return home to North Killingholme.
