70th Anniversary B17 Crash

This section will tell the story of the B17 collision over Canvey in 1944 and the crash which killed so many of the crew.

70 years on people from far and wide will be gathering on Canvey on June 21st for a service in St Nicholas Church. Only one crew member who survived the crash is still alive. Unfortunately Richard Andrews will not be able to join us but one of his daughters will be there.

The archive have new material we will be adding here as our contribution to the commemoration.
