Just to let people know, that will be a short service of remembrance at the Westgate war memorial on Monday at 5pm to recall the crews of the two United States Army Air Force Liberator bombers, who died the same evening in 1944 when two aircraft crashed on the beaches of Westgate and Foreness Point, as related in the earlier story, seen below.
The Mayor of Margate, Cllr Brian Sullivan and members of the Margate Charter Trustess will be present together with Fr. John Slater who will perform a short service.
I have arranged (weather permitting of course) for a fly-by involving a vintage Stampe SV4 biplane and a Piper L4 Cub in US colours of the period. My sincere thans to pilots, Terry Brown and Anthony Bendkowski, for volunteering their time and their aircraft for the occasion.
I understand that BBC SE News may also send a crew down to film the occasion, which would be nice. If any Westgate residents could support the event then I would be very pleased to see them.
