18th February 1956

In memory of the 44 RAF lads who were coming home after serving their tour of duty in the Suez Canal Zone, and one army lad who was coming home on compassionate leave. They all lost their lives on 18th February 1956 when the Avro York plane in which they were travelling crashed into the mountains near Zurrieg, Malta. The 5 crew members also lost their lives.
All their names are recorded on the Suez Veterans Association's Memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum, Alrewas, Staffordshire. May they Rest in Peace.
