Sergeant Noel Cash

Sergeant Noel Cash came from Wrexham, a salesman at Astons Furnishings in the town he joined up at the start of the war when he was just 18 years of age and he was part of Drummond's first 'Goblin' crew in October 1941. He didn't however stay long before moving on to another Squadron based at Graveley, Cambs. He would lose his life in a crash close to the airfield at Papworth St Agnes, just south of Godmanchester. A wonderful 'intake' photograph taken of No 41 Wellington OTU Air Gunners Course based at RAF Bassingbourn, dated Autumn 1941. Noel is back row far left. I can't help but wonder just how many of these young men made it to VE Day?

 Noel is remembered on his school's marble memorial 


And also on the gates of the local park, where he is buried alongside his parents
