Pilot Officer C H Hight - a tribute: Pilot Hight Road, Bournemouth (3)
One of two road signs with Spitfire images at each end of Pilot Hight Road, Bournemouth. The road was named in memory of RAF Pilot Officer Cecil Henry Hight from New Zealand, aged 22, who died 15 August 1940 in the Battle of Britain, and the only Allied airman to have been killed over Bournemouth town during the Battle. These new road signs with Spitfire images replaced the ordinary ones at Pilot Hight Road in 2010.
