On 9 October 1942, an Avro Anson aircraft crashed near Clackline. The airmen, all from 68 Reserve Squadron based at Geraldton, were on a training mission, flying from Cunderdin to Pearce air force base.
Partway along what should have been a routine flight, the aircraft crashed and burned, killing four crew members and destroying the aircraft.
At the conclusion of the service participants make their way back to the Northam Memorial Hall on Fitzgerald Street.
