Remembrance services to honour the fallen
A ROYAL Air Force Association (RAFA) branch has held two remembrance services to honour the fallen.
The Letchworth Hitchin and District Branch of the RAFA marked the Battle of Britain on Sunday with a service at the Letchworth War Memoral.
RAF flags were also raised in Hitchin and Baldock.
The branch also held a service in memory of Royal Flying Corps members Captain Patrick Hamilton and Lieutenant Atholl Wyness-Stuart, who lost their lives after the engine of their monoplane failed over Graveley a century ago.
Almost 100 people gathered last Sunday at the memorial at the scene of the crash on the Willian to Great Wymondley Road, including relatives and military veterans.
The band from 1066 (Hitchin) Squadron Air Training Corps led the procession to the monument, before a service was conducted by Rev Ann Pollington, vicar of St Ippolyts with Great and Little Wymondley.
