Hebblethwaite Places
Hebblethwaite Memorial Gate, Tisbury, Wiltshire
Set in the wall of Gaston Manor, their home in the High Street, the gate was designed by Bernard Hebblethwaite in memory of his son Flight Officer Edwin ‘Peter’ Hebblethwaite RAFVR, following his death at the age of 27 whilst serving with Bomber Command on the 3rd May 1942. Whilst on an operation to bomb Hamburg, his aircraft was believed to have been shot down over the North Sea. There were no survivors, he was buried in Germany.

A group of young people in Tisbury has got together to restore a wrought iron gate commemorating a young man from the village who died in World War II.
Members of Tisbury youth club have had the gate sandblasted and are now priming and painting it in the colours of the emblems of the various organisations to which Peter Hebblethwaite belonged. 
Jeff Scholefield, of Tisbury Royal British Legion, said the gate had deteriorated over the years and he had suggested the project to the current owner of Gaston Manor. 
"He welcomed it," said Mr Scholefield, who has been researching the histories of Tisbury's 73 fallen heroes of the two world wars and has stood alongside Peter Hebblethwaite's grave.
"I am delighted the young people have taken this on and are doing such a good job. We hope to have the gate up in time for Armistice Day on November 11." 

I am indebted to David Robertson for alerting me to the photograph of the Memorial Gate by John Wain. David's father was a close friend when he worked in Lincolnshire for the Grimsby Evening Telegraph.
