Hi, just to say well done on uncovering Lancaster PB569. My great uncle was Sgt Charles Scurr and it makes very interesting in reading of the action in which he was killed and looking at the photographs of the find. Well done. Kind Regards

Een vriend heeft onderdelen van een B17 bomber gevonden aan de Rue Saint Roche ter hoogte van Chapelle Saint Roche in Houffalize in de Belgische Ardennen. Weet iemand welk toestel hier is neergestort en wanneer ?

Re B17 Patches
My dad Don Cunningham is the pilot in your posted picture of Patches. He completed his
25th mission on June 13, 1943. Friday the 13th
I have his logbooks showing missions he flew to the Schweinfurt Ball Bearing plant. Where he said the flack was so thick you could walk on it.
Thanks for your great story on the final resting place of Patches!

Many thanks

My uncle John Wilfred Noel Westlake was one of the crew,mid upper gunner of ed 629 who lost there lives over the hamlet of Grote Heide Neerpelt 16-17-6-1943.Shot down by fl/lt Werner Baake .Sadly on there first flight together.So Many people lost there lives not just through bomber command,but just to keep us free.I think you are doing a great job locating lost aircraft and crews and for the future thank you.

Hi... I'm looking for information regarding Whitley Z6479 which was shot down near Houthalen on 17.06.1941.

I am the nephew of Fl. Sgt. Douglas John Frederick JEFFERIS, who was rear gunner.

I'm particularly interested in finding the exact location of the crash, and what became of crew member Cecil CRICHTON - he was not found at the crash site and there is no POW record for him.

Any information gratefully received.
Thank you.

We think to know the crashsite of Z1613, I was there recently but the farmland was just newly planted. We will have to wait untilll the fall. There is a information display from all crashes erected by a member of Planehunters Mr. Ploegmakers that shows the crash position as well the information.
You can mail me on

Message for Judy Anderson...William Booth Brooks was a great friend of my Uncle Fl Lt David Drew DFC OC B Flight 64 Sqn. David flew up to Witchford on 9/11/1944 to to visit F/O Brooks in hospital after he crash landed in a field 5 miles from Brussels/Melsbroek ...David knew him as Paddy.

Read with great interest about Wellington bomber HF852 which crash at Elsendorp on the 1st August 1942. Looking for information in regard to another Elendorp crash involving again another Wellington, Z1613 which was shot down on the 27th August 1942. Would like to know the location of the crash, and if any items where recovered during the war, or since.
Again this also relates to a wallet marked JWS which belong to Joseph William Stuart of New Zealand an uncle of my friend.
The wallet itself was presented to "Bill" by the mayor of Cambridge NZ on the 12th June 1941 prior to his departure to England.
Most of all I would like to know if both crashes are comemorated in anyway in the village of Elsendorp.
Hoping someone can help.
