Clear memories of Czech and Polish aircrew on a grey November …

The strains of three buglers playing the Last Post faded away and the only sound during two minutes of silence was the smattering of raindrops on autumn leaves. Earlier heavy rain cut the attendance at this year s tribute to Czech and Polish aircrew who flew Wellingtons from East Wretham airfield during WW2 and are buried in a corner of St Ethelbert s churchyard but approaching 60 people stood in the damp greyness of a November morning to honour their memory.

In a ceremony staged by Thetford branch Royal Air Forces Association, the Rector (the Rev Canon Bob Baker) led a short service at the war memorial before Mayor of Thetford Robert Kybird led wreath laying. The parade, with six standards from Royal British Legion, RAFA and ATC then moved to the war graves, where poppy crosses were planted. In his address, Canon Baker recalled those who had and were laying down their lives but urged that prayer should also be offered to diplomats from all countries trying to bring lasting peace in the world.

The last post was sounded by three buglers from Stowmarket Boys Brigade band. Wreathes were laid by representatives from the Czech, Slovak and Polish embassies, Free Czech Air Force, RAF Honington, RAFA, RBL, ATC, Wretham Parish Council and Thetford Town Council. Later in the village hall, RAFA chairman John Macpherson handed engraved tankards to the three representatives of the embassies involved and thanked everyone for their part in the morning.

Flying in from the Czech Republic especially for the ceremony was Pavel Hamberger, whose grandfather is among those buried in the Wretham war graves He placed a wreath on the grave.

Breckland Home Watch Message 15 th January 2015 This week s Home Watch message draws your attention to the fact that we are still receiving reports of dwelling burglaries. They are sporadic which makes it difficult for the police to anticipate where the offenders might strike next and plan appropriately. On this basis, this week s message is a plea for you the public to report any suspicious activity, be it persons carrying out random door to door enquiries or sales, vehicles cruising about in areas where the vehicle appears out of place or the behaviour of the persons, which causes suspicion.

You never know that small piece of information that you provide might just be what leads the police to making effective arrests. Please remember as much detail as you can. A pen and paper by the phone is always a good idea to record what you see whilst it is still fresh.

The police are interested in colour, make and model of vehicles and especially the registration number. Any description of the occupants and a direction of travel are also valuable. It is worth remembering that statistically in Norfolk you are likely to be burgled once in every 400 years we still live in a very safe county so please do not be alarmed by this message together we can address this criminal activity.

As always, any concerns or requests for Crime Prevention advice can be requested via the 101 which is the same number to use in the event of a non-emergency Message from Chief Inspector Paul Wheatley Please note the information contained within the crime summary is information suitable for public distribution and does not include certain categories that may have personal privacy or data protection implications.
