Crashed aircraft St Albans 1955
By Allen Scott
I remember the crash very clearly. The plane went across the top of the school just missing the roofs, it bounced down the fields, crossed Sanpit Lane and ended up in Patterson’s farm (now houses).
Us lads gathered little bits of debris that had fallen from the plane to keep as souvenirs. We were very disappointed the next morning when the police visited the school and confiscated our trophies. That was a great school and a lot of characters, pupils and teachers. What memories.
