P.O. Arthur Clarke

by In Reach Of The Skies July. 05, 2020 207 views

Driving along a country lane near Newchurch the wingman alerted me to a memorial stone at the side of the road. It turned out to commemorate the life of Arthur William Clarke who sadly came to grief in his Hurricane on 11th September 1940 during the height of the Battle of Britain. Although parts of the aircraft have been recovered Arthur Clarke remains where he fell defending this country. Since he has no grave his name appears on the wall at Runnymede, where I was a few days ago. Thank you and RIP Arthur.

Tell your wingman I said good spotting. A very nice memorial.
