Even after 72+ years I can still hear the sound of the airmines which travelled above me. I know my query is very late but the experience not forgotten (I was then 13 years of age). A reply, one way or the other would be appreciated.

I have the Telegram and envelope informing the rev.Eric Nesbitt of the death of his son Eric Hugh.

His father, Eric John William Nesbitt was Rector at Barnack (1937-1944) and Stoke Albany (1944-1955) where Hugh’s name is on their War Memorial. He had five brothers and sisters now all deceased with one exception. His memorial stone is Grave 8 Plate 6 Row 4 Limmer Hanover.

I wanted to find out where they flew.
