Welney (St Mary) churchyard.
In addition to these eight young men of Welney who were killed in action abroad during WW2,
there were a number of RAF crew from other parts of the UK (and elsewhere) who died in or
around Welney, some victims of a German "intruder" aircraft, some in a crash due to thick
fog, and others through accidents during training flights.
The accounts of the crashes, the men who died, and those who survived and what happened to
some of them and their aircraft afterwards, are told in a series of pages via the link on
the right. Among them are some remarkable stories.
Many of the pages are still "work-in-progress".
