lincoln bomber crash

hi,
In about 1950 I was playing football on the school playing field when a Lincoln bomber flew directly overhead and then it banked and dived steeply into the ground about two miles away, there were no survivors. I cycled up to the site of the crash. The wreckage was spread over an area about 300 yds square, no part of it seemed larger than about one foot across. Does anyone remember that?

remembering Mr Cozens, MC

do you remember Mr Cozens?
I remember him as a very good maths teacher who was very well respected.
when i was about thirteen years old and at the start of a new school year my form moved up into his class while he was away on extended leave, I think it was for medical reasons. He had set maths problems which were written up on the board each lesson. We worked away without a break and his spirit seemed to hover in the room keeping a watchful eye on us. After what must have been several weeks he returned and we met him for the first time as our teacher. Expecting that our work would be checked carefully I remember being quite nervous but there was no reference to the work at all. He just started on something new. We were impressed.
