A dedication took place in 4 March 2023 at the grave of Richard Curle, organised by Monsieur Pascuali, President of the Château d'Oléron Veterans Association in association with the town hall on the island. A new plaque was unveiled on Richard's grave.
M. Pascuali organised the tribute ceremony that took place on 4 March 2023, the 80th anniversary of the loss of the crew aboard Lancaster ED559. More images can be seen on this Facebook link.
Unfortunately, I had not been informed of the event happening. My thanks to Luis Garrido for the information about the event.
I am once again indebted to Luis Garrido for the following images. He was visiting the gave of Richard and noticed a new memorial has been added. It's uncertain at this time who was responsible for this. There is a small coat of arms at the base but I currently do not know which organisation this represents. Hopefully, we'll find out more in the future.
Lovely to see someone decided to add this to the grave.
As and when information is found I'll post to this blog.
