Sunday 19 January

Started the day by going to church and joining in the choir for a final time, for this visit. After lunch, we headed out for a walk into the Heathlands, which stretched for 8 miles and took us 3 hours. Although it started bright and sunny, it gradually clouded over as we walked down the Eerbeekseweg, 4 miles out of town. Our aim was the Bomber Memorial, a simple plate of rusty steel in the shape of a bomber and its wing. In 1943, a Lancaster bomber had crashed near that site. A total of 8 flyers were killed in this municipality during WW2. There were a few other walkers and cyclists about, but the chilly weather kept most others at home.
