578 Sqn Halifax Memorial, Baulkholme

by Martin Ellis
Memorial to the crew of two Halifax Bombers from Burn which collided between Hull and Burn when returning from a raid on Germany on night of 20 / 21 July 1944. Both aircraft came down near Baulkholme (near Howden), one still carrying a hung up 500 llb bomb which was only discovered and de-fused recently near the foundations of a new house. None of the crew survived from either aircraft.
