This memorial is at the crash site just south of Camborne. Photos taken on 24th June 2011.

The plaque



The entrance to the chapel which is kept as a memorial garden.



Location SW 648 417 Note: the site is NOT at the current Roscroggan Chapel which is now a B & B but a quarter of a mile along the lane towards Camborne.

The two of the crew, Day and Atkinson, who are buried in Illogan War Graves Cemetery are featured in this video:

It seems the pilot Atkinson managed to turn the plane away from the town of Camborne and probably saved many lives on the ground in doing so.

Many thanks for that link Cornwallphil, I've just watched it all the way through, it's very good. Looks like the plaque has been scratched a few times, plus a bit faded in one place, unless it's just the angle that it's been photographed. Either way it's good that they are remembered.

Sadly the plaque is both faded and scratched. However it's good that the local folk hold a memorial service there each year.
