What a delight to find your website. I was born at Fans farm in 1949 but left the Borders at the age of 16 to serve in the Royal Navy. I was very pleased to read the article on the German warplane on Darlingfield hill. As a child on Lightfield farm I knew of this and despite parental instructions NOT to go there both my late sister and I of course did on many occasions. It's great to know that the family descendants were able to visit and know the area their loved ones were lost. Best wishes. from William Bell
Thank you, William, for your kind comment on the Auld Earlston blog. I shall pass your recollections on the Darlingfield war time crash to the descendants of the pilot, who I know willl appreciate your thoughts.
Thank you for taking the time to comment. Your feedback is much appreciated.
