More details of a planned memorial for members of an RAF crew who died in an air accident in World War Two have been shared.

As the News reported last week, a group of volunteers is hoping to find the descendants of ten fatalities from the crash near Marham RAF base during a wartime training exercise.

One of the men who died is a Sergeant Percy George Crosbie whose parents, John and Hilda, are believed to have hailed from Camberwell and lived at 107 Sumner Road.

The site of the crash is now a nature reserve near Norfolk’s border with Cambridgeshire.  Ten saplings have been planted in memory of those who died, with a memorial plaque planned.

It is hoped any relatives traced can attend a memorial service later in the year organised with the RAF.
