Liberator Flight Memorial Service

It was a privilege to attend the Liberator Memorial Service on 4 November.

Students Bradley, Lewis, Peter and Senel laid a wreath on behalf of the young people of Broxbourne, in memory of the American crew of the B-24 Liberator USAAF plane that crashed outside the town on 12 August 1944. The article on the Herts Memories website says the plane was “on its way to perform a bombing mission when it is thought that a mid-air collision sent it tumbling from the sky with a full payload of explosives. Headed for the heart of Cheshunt, the crew bravely remained on board to steer the aircraft clear of the town.”

The event was attended by Robert Voss CBE CStJ, the Lord Lieutenant of Hertfordshire (HM The King’s representative in the county), Liz Green the High Sheriff of Hertfordshire, Paul Seeby the Mayor of Broxbourne, and many others from the Broxbourne area.

Thank you to Mrs Bundock for organising the students and supporting today, and Mrs Grindley (Deputy Head Teacher) and Mrs Willis (Chair of Governors) for attending.
