Abingdons terrible aircrash

6th July 1965

Today is a tale from the boundary of my family, The Robinsons and the families of the 41men killed in what was described as the worst RAF peacetime plane crash.

My uncle  M/AQM Joseph W Robinson was one of the men killed.

Every year on  the nearest Sunday to the date of the crash a service is held at the tiny church of St Lawrence  in Toot Baldon Oxfordshire. The church looks out over the field where the plane came down.

Today is the day of the service, but due to holidays for my sister and my visit to Scarborough, we are unable to make the journey to attend the service

At the rising of the sun and at its going down,
We remember them.
