Happened to be in Felixstowe for work and came across this plaque on the wall of the town hall. It was the name Haggis that caught my eye but Angus Craig and Ernest Murray were also 'Scottish sounding' so I took a snap. Glad I did.

From local paper website

On the wall of the Town Hall, Undercliff Road West, there is a plaque in memory of seven airmen who in 1944 gave their lives to save Felixstowe managing to steer their crashing Lancaster plane away from the resort, at the last minute smashing into the sea instead.
