Barlow crash site

AJ-E 2983

Today I was lucky enough to be shown the site where Norman Barlow’s AJ-E crashed on the Dams Raid, just outside Haldern in the Northern Rhineland area of Germany. My guide was Volker Schurmann, shown (above right) along with your humble scribe, who has been the first person to place a plaque on the site, and who is now campaigning to get a permanent memorial built.
More about this tomorrow!
