Wellington T10 LN819 from 1 Air Navigation School, RAF Hullavington. The aircraft lost engine power after a night take off. Control was lost and it spun into the ground 1 mile north of Hullavington. 4 people were killed in the crash.

Born 24th September 1930, died 29th March 1950 ... I was terribly bad at maths but that would make him 19 years, 6 months and 5 days old the day he died. Since the marker says "Age 18" I'm guessing the person that researched this made a typo with the year of birth being 1931.
