Sgt Thomas Mottershead statue appeal

Post by Jelle Hieminga »

A charity appeal has been launched to raise funds for a statue of SGT Thomas Mottershead VC DCM in his home town, Widnes. Thomas Mottershead was the only non-commissioned Royal Flying Corps pilot to be awarded the Victoria Cross and for 44 years the scroll with his name flew on XV106, and later on XR808. Please visit the appeal website to see how you can help: the SGT Thomas Mottershead VC DCM Statue Appeal.

It would be wonderful if this group will be able to unveil a statue of Sgt Thomas Mottershead on the Centenary of his widow receiving his VC from the King. The story of this airman's last flight is remarkable and it is great that his memory will be honoured this way.
