  • Chris Pearson says...
  • A favourite tough hill run up from Upwaltham and its lovely ancient 900 year old Norman chapel. Overshadowed by the sad memorial near the top to the eight crew of a Lancaster bomber from 617 dambuster squadron that lost their lives here. On the 12th February 1944 eleven bombers set out from Ford (near Chichester) and ten returned the following morning. One of those ten was Lancaster DV382 of 617 Squadron, then based at Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire. They had landed at Royal Naval Air Station, Ford, on return from a bombing raid against the Antheor Viaduct in Southern France. After making a three hour stopover for de-briefing and a meal, the crew of DV382 took off from RNAS Ford at 8.15am on the 13th February 1944 to continue back to base at Woodhall Spa. The Lancaster took off in very poor morning visibility.Within five minutes, in low cloud, they flew into trees at the top Littleton Down. Local farm workers pulled the badly burnt pilot , Squadron Leader William Suggitt DFC Royal Canadian Air Force from the wreckage but he sadly died 2 days later, age 23 having completed 64 operational flights. see
