I notice that you have taken a number of photographs at St Mary's Church in Fairford. I don't know if it's conveniently located but is there any chance you might photograph the following memorial plaque there?
On the west wall of the chancel of St Mary's Church in Fairford,
It reads: "NoŽlle, Widow of the 19th Earl of Rothes, and Beloved Wife of Col. Claud Macfie D.S.O. of Fayre Court, Fairford, At Rest 12 Sept. 1956. Holiness is an infinite compassion for others. Greatness is to take the common things of life and walk truly among them. Happiness is a great love and much servingĒ.
Whilst I realise it's not your speciality interest, I'd be really grateful.

I see that you have posted his record ... you might be interested in the following, which I found out while researching a grave in Plymyard Cemetery, Wirral.
He was the wireless op of an Armstrong Whitworth Whitley Mk V (P4939) of No. 10 OTU, RAFVR, Abingdon which took off at 01.15 on a night training exercise. It stalled shortly after take off and crashed at Sandleigh Road playing fields, St. Helen Without, Abingdon (Then in Berkshire but now part of Oxfordshire).
