"This Memorial to No. 5 Bomber Group was made and presented In 1991 by Mrs Peggy Hayles, who served as a WAAF Sergeant at RAF Metheringham and who was Confirmed at Holy Trinity, Martin.
The Memorial was Dedicated at the 106 Squadron Reunion Service in July 1991.
No. 5 Bomber Group, of which RAF Metheringham was a principal Station, controlled up to 12 Stations, mainly flying Lancasters. The Group made 70,357 sorties and lost nearly 2,000 aircraft with 11,990 Aircrew killed or missing.
The perspex hangers for this Memorial are made from pieces of perspex from a ,Lancaster III, No. PB533, of 83 Pathfinder Squadron, RAF Coningsby. The aircraft was diverted on return from operations, due to fog, to RAF Metheringham which had Just installed FIDO (Fog Intensive Dispersal Of). Despite the Ignition of the FIDO pipes the aircraft overshot and crashed on the North West Dispersal area and into Blankney Woods with no survivors"
