RAF Ludford Magna memorial
This memorial is to the men of 101 squadron, bomber command based at RAF Ludford Magna.

"Opened in June 1943, it was to be the home of the veteran No. 101 Squadron, which had served three different groups in Bomber Command. As well as being part of the main force, the squadron was given the additional and unique role operating radio-countermeasures employing the ABC device to jam enemy transmissions. In this battle with Luftwaffe night fighter control, German-speaking operators were carried in some of its Lancaster's to intrude on enemy voice transmissions. During operations from Ludford Magna, 113 Lancaster's failed to return or crashed."
