Nevertheless many of these personnel were killed. Some killed in action lie peacefully in a quiet corner of Barkingside Cemetery. Others, killed in action after they left Fairlop, now lie at peace in various cemeteries, from Scotland to Malta and Algeria. A few have no known grave.
The crest below shows the three types of aircraft which flew from Fairlop, The Spitfire, the Mustang and the Typhoon with a backdrop of an Oak. I make no apology to those interested in the formalities of RAF heraldry, for the crest is an acknowledgment and a dedication to all those forgotten folk who lived, fought and died at Fairlop in the name of peace.
