The TA arrive at High Beeches after Halifax crash

In 1988 a story appeared in the Crawley Observer relating to the horrific crash of a Halifax bomber in Handcross which badly damaged High Beeches house in the early hours of 12th March 1943.
The story was seen by retired engineer Leonard Stork from Crawley who was serving in the Territorial Army at the time and who with three others jumped into a truck and sped to the scene of devastation. In response to the article, he contacted the newspaper who promptly devoted a major article to his involvement on that night.
Further details and photographs of the incident can be found by clicking on “Groups” and selecting “High Beeches”.
