The anniversary was also covered, with emphasis on the Beckenham AFS, in a half page article in the Bromley News Shopper of 24th April 2021:

You may need to register (free) to view this. I'm not sure how long it will remain online, so if interested, download the page from the menu at top right.

I have photographs of the original reports in the 1941 Beckenham Journal.

The Beckenham men all have blocks of flats, or in one case a road, named after them.




Hi Chris, I have tried to reach you by message, but would love to speak to you about these original photographs if I can, thanks Paul
