At Hennymoor Farm
Craig Griffin

At Hennymoor Farm

In a field rarely seen

A young schoolboy witnesses

The end of so many dreams

As the Wellington they flew

Fell horribly from the sky

Navigation or lack of fuel

May have been the reasons why

Some of Canada’s bravest were lost

On that August summer’s night

Training to protect our island

As Fascism this world did fight

Willis, Lowell, James

Walter and John Lee

Heroes to our island

Forever you will be

And the only way we can say it

As the moment is now long gone

Is with a fitting memorial

So your names

Will eternally live on

Craig Griffin In tribute to the Canadian crew of HE821
