THE BOYS
John Lowe

In the late evening of Friday, 21st March, 1941 an RAF Hampden bomber crashes onto Dartmoor.

After seventy years, this story attempts to bring into focus the events of that day and reflects on the young aircrew whose lives ended that night on the wind swept slopes of Hameldown.
