Hertfordshire Memorials

TRT
I have to admit an inappropriate smile and a curiosity about a particular road quite close (about 8km) to SHADO HQ. The road came well after UFO, so not much chance of an influence on the script writers. The road I'm referring to is Lieutenant Ellis Way in Cheshunt.

The real history of the road can be found here:

But in my head, there's only one Lieutenant Ellis.

Ha! I only decided to post this because Lieutenant Ellis Way is mentioned in the Hertfordshire Draft Speed Management Strategy Document…
I read on and see that one proposal for ensuring compliance on such a road would be to install a SID*.

Hi TRT

I was tempted to say I think you should scribble out the name 'Way' on the road sign so that it would definitively refer to our most beloved UFO character :). However after reading the tragic story of Lt Way and his brave crew in your I think it would be an act of sheer malice & vandalism :(

But yes I agree the road would always remind UFO fans of their favourite (but tragically under-used) character of Lt Ellis.

"Interceptor Launch"  :)
