The Earith Memorial 

The Earith Memorial was instigated in the 1990's by the late Sqn Ldr Charles Lofthouse OBE DFC who was at the time Secretary of 7 Squadron Association.  The Memorial records the tragic loss of a Squadron Aircraft and a Hurricane during a Fighter Evasion Exercise in which both aircraft collided with the loss of the crews.  The Memorial is located on the edge of Earith village adjacent to the dyke into which the aircraft fell, the crash site being a short distance to the north.

In 2021 the Earith Parish Council graciously offered to replace the wooden bench in the Memorial Site with a new metal seat which incorperates the silouhette of a Hawker Hurricane and Short Stirling both of which were lost in the incident.  The new Bench is in itself a fitting reminder of the scrifice made by the Squadron in WWII.
