The unsung hero of Barnsley by Dave Cherry

4 07 2019

A remarkable film by the Barnsley singer and film historian Dave Cherry about a little known piece of Second World War history.
In January 1942 an Australian pilot crashed his plane into a Barnsley quarry, sacrificing himself, to save hundreds of people in the nearby terraced houses.
The Whitley bomber was returning to RAF Dalton airfield near Thirsk, in the North East, when its engines failed and he jettisoned the bombs on the moors south of Sheffield.
Dave explores the story using archive film and eye witness accounts.
He interviews his relatives in Australia and traces the flight path of the doomed plane.

You can view the film here:
