At the time of the crash the local schoolmaster wrote to Mrs Ludlow, F/L Levy's mother saying " You've no idea what we thought when we saw the plane heading for the school, with 300 children. Your son managed to hedgehop the plane away from the schools."
A letter from the local vicar expresses "gratitude for the cool courage and strenuous effort and great skill of the pilot who steered the fast-disintegrating plane over the school into a field beyond, and so protected them from harm and death."
As a result of F/L Levy's action, the village collected 100 pounds for the RNZAF Benevolent Fund, the school held a special ceremony and mounted a photograph of him in a permanent place of honour, and the village held a service for the airmen. AWMM

I can remember Ross's photo on the wall in our school hall in Potton during the seventies. It's always stayed with me and as soon as it became easier to research things because of the internet, I tracked him down as did a former classmate, Michael Snoswell.
