550 Squadron Commemoration May 2019
22nd May 2019
On this date six 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.
Belgium Civil and Military dignitaries took part, and local school children and placed crosses in memory of both the aircrew and local villagers who lost their lives as a consequence of the air-crash. Representatives from Sint Niklaas and Westerlo also attended.
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.
