WITH reference to the article in The Journal (November 6) on the memorial dedicated to the American airmen who lost their lives in an air crash in Kessingland in 1944, may I take this opportunity to acknowledge with thanks, all who helped in this project.

WITH reference to the article in The Journal (November 6) on the memorial dedicated to the American airmen who lost their lives in an air crash in Kessingland in 1944, may I take this opportunity to acknowledge with thanks, all who helped in this project.

This includes Kessingland Parochial Church Council, Kessingland Parish Council and the editor of the Kessingland Times and all those who donated to the cost of manufacturing and installing the stone tablet in the churchyard.

I would particularly thank Howsham stonemasons for the excellent job they made in producing this stone.

Thanks Kessingland for all your support and we now look forward to April 22, 2010, which will be the 66th anniversary of when the tragic event occurred and a service of dedication of the memorial will be held in Kessingland Church and we will be hosting several of the American relatives of the airmen who have indicated that they dearly wish to attend.
