The Hercules in front of the war memorial in Bassingham village Lincolnshire

Not a war memorial as such, a memorial to two airmen built and paid for by residents of the nearby town, a fantastic gesture imho

Cycled past this today in the Vosges Mountains, tiny little road above Anould.

Memorial to the crew of a crashed B17. I don’t know how often it is visited but simple and very moving. Someone’s son, brother, father never came home.

Next to it was the remains of a motor from a P51 Mustang which apparently crashed on the same mission.
