Hello Boeing777-200LR,

You probably have seen this site, but just in case you haven't :-
http://www.flensted.eu.com/1944106.shtml
A small photo of the rear of the crashed Lancaster, and photos of the graves of the crew.

Also you probably picked up the small mistake on the 2nd document you posted.
It has the Pilot as J. V. Vernan RAF, but he was James Verran RNZAF DFC and M.I.D.

Thanks for the very interesting post, I hope others will be along to add further details.

Cheers,
Wayne.

Hi Wayne.

Thank you for your post and added site.

Also for James Verran RNZAF DFC and M.I.D. correction. I will change the document.

Thanks again.

Douglas
