ON April 30, 1941, Captain Pilot Kenneth Guy Evans from Highbury crash-landed a Wellington bomber in St Andrews Park, Bristol. He managed to steer the aircraft away from housing thus saving civilian casualties after the plane was damaged by a balloon cable.
He and two other members of crew died and three were injured.
The residents of St Andrews are planning to erect a memorial and pay tribute to the men but dearly wish to invite relatives.
We know a grandson has made inquires some years ago but we cannot track him down. Can anyone who knows the family please ask them to contact me?
