The service will be held at RAF Lakenheath for the crew of Jolly 22, the Pave Hawk helicopter manned by Captains Sean Ruane and Christopher Stover, Technical Sergeant Dale Mathews and Staff Sergeant Afton Ponce which crashed near Salthouse last Tuesday.

The service will be held in the base's Hangar 7, starting at 1.56pm - the crew were part of the 56th Rescue Squadron.
