Unveiling of the remembrance posts

Both post will be unveiled at the same location but will be placed in two different locations. Due to road safety, we have decided to do the unveiling at 1 location and this is at the Water Tower.


At the unveiling, we would like to reflect on the crew of a total of 3 aircraft. An Avro Lancaster crashed at the Slikkerdijk in Wieringerwaard. There were 7 crew members on the plane.


Two Beaufighters collided at the Wieringerwaard Water Tower. There were 2 crew members on both aircraft. The mayor of Hollands Kroon will be present again and an eyewitness to the devastation. The Embassy of the United Kingdom will also be represented.



14.30 – 15.00:

After the unveiling of the two remembrance posts, we will go to the Wieringerwaard cemetery (near Iepenlaan 6, Wieringerwaard) where 5 crew members are buried. The national anthems will be played in the cemetery, followed by the Last Post and one minute of silence.


15:00:

Coffee and tea in the "Witte Kerk" in Wieringerwaard. (Trambaan near Noord Zijperweg)
