Pegasus Bridge Memorial Flight
Mike Colton from the Allied Special Forces Association has informed the branch of a new memorial commemorating the landings at Pegasus Bridge on D-Day to be known as the Pegasus Bridge Memorial Flight. Currently a mock up the memorial is described at the memorial grove website linked to the picture below.
Funds are being collected to enable the memorial to be constructed at the National Memorial Arboretum.
Part of the memorial will include a list of all the Royal Engineers who participated in Operation Deadstick which was the mission to remove the explosives from the bridges.
Jack G3PWK reminded us on Net today how close the gliders got during the raid as he a had a first hand account. This is also illustrated in the photo below.
