When adding the details of the loss of the Richards crew to the AFTERMATH website yesterday, I looked up Arthur North on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website and discovered that the epitaph used for his permanent gravestone came from the hymn O Valiant Hearts. This remarkable and deeply poignant hymn is also connected with Ernest Deverill and his wife Joyce. See this new page: O Valiant Hearts.

The picture on this post of Ernest with Joyce can be found in the RAF Pathfinders Archive publication which can be bought here: Ernest Deverill – A Knight of the Air. All profits go to the RAF Pathfinders Archive.
