My ancestors come from Bozeat in Northamptonshire in England. You possibly know already but I thought i would post this extract from a description of Bozeat.
"Although not a 'son' of Bozeat, one young airman of the second world war is remembered each year on Remembrance Sunday with great gratitude by the village. When his plane developed engine trouble, he instructed his crew to bail out. Then Lt John Ahern, aged 22 years, of the United States Air Force, crashed his plane beyond the village, in the fields of Red Gables farm. His life was lost, but lives and property in Bozeat were saved that day."
