Notes about the war memorial

This is a memorial to a US Liberator crew who crash landed on the pebble ridge that extends from Porlock Weir east to Hurlstone Point. Apparently, the plane hit part of Hurlstone point in very poor conditions in 1942 and tried to get back to the marshes but must have been very unlucky. I first came across the memorial in July 1967 and it was quite evocative. It has since been moved a short distance as the ridge was allowed to be breached, and in its new position, there is now a proper board with all the details.
