I have to agree with Danny about the crash site at this time. All i've seen, points to the crash of this aircraft being at Baaler Bruch SSW of Goch. No offence but without "definite" and i mean definite identification of this being W7629 it would be unwise to put a certain aircraft identity to it, no matter how certain you might think you are. You would need to find certain parts, such as the engine serial number plates, personal items etc (something like the eagle brooch pictured, which might have been given by a wife/girlfriend) which can be tied in with a single aircraft.

Just found this site.

I am very interested in this topic as the Flt Engineer on Stirling W7629 was Ronald Sawyer who was my Uncle.

He was my Mothers brother (she had three brothers all killed during WWII or before) so as I was born in 1950 I never met any of them.

I had done some research on the crash in which he perished and applied successfully for the 'Bomber Command' clasp in his name.

The records show that W7629 crashed in the Baaler Bruch.

Has any more info come light recently?
