Heavenly Body Crash

One of my Facebook readers sent this to me yesterday. Although the memorial isn't in Norfolk or Suffolk, it does commemorate a crash that involved a crew from Station 134, Brome/Eye. The "Heavenly Body" from the 490th Bomb Group. Thank you, Chris!

Chris says it is between Nailstone and Ibstock, Leicestershire. (Americans, this is pronounced Lester!). Here's the local history page from Heavenly Body Crash
