 GROVE PLAN



Garden 4 - The Sun Room and Special Air Service Regiment

The Sun Room honours Fl/Lt. Jack Hesmondhalgh - WW2 RAF 101 Squadron Tail End Airgunner and Chairman of the Allied Special Forces Association 2001-2010. Jack was shot down over Brest Harbour on a mission to bomb two German Battleships.

He survived and was picked up out of the water by the crew of a Anti-aircraft flakship and on arrival was offered a cigarette and a shot of Brandy. He spent the rest of the war in captivity but carried on in the Royal Air Force for many years after the war. He retired to run the Hereford Airgunners Association.

Jack introduced our motto "Nil actum credens, dum quid superesset agendum"
"Think nothing done, whilst things need to be done." By Roman Poet Lucan.
