1940


Bitte klicken Sie auf die untenstehenden Links. Sie werden dann mit allen aktuellen Informationen versorgt, die die Aircrew Remembrance Society insbesondere in Zusammenhang mit diesem Verlust archiviert hat. In den letzten vierzig Jahren wurden viele Quellen, offizielle Dokumente, Berichte von Veteranen , Untersuchungen der Absturzorte und Beiträge von Freunden, Familien und geliebten Menschen erforscht und zusammengestellt. Einige der Artikel sind hervorragend dokumentiert, aber von anderen gibt es nur kurze Beschreibungen und wenige Details. Alle sind hier gesammelt in der Hoffnung auf zusätzliche Informationen, um die Erinnerung an die gefallenen Flieger zu erhalten und zu verbessern, aber ebenso den Verwandten ein Zeugnis und Berichte zu bieten, die uns dann wiederum zusätzliches Material zur Verfügung stellen können. Jeder heute hier auf unserer Website präsentierte Erinnerungsbeitrag wird auch von der British Library archiviert, um diesen jungen Männer für alle Zeiten einen Ort der Erinnerung zu erhalten.


Please click on the links shown below. You will then be provided with all the current information that the Aircrew Remembrance Society have archived, relating to this particular loss. Compiled and researched over the last forty years from many resources, official documents, veteran accounts, crash site investigation and contributions from friends, family and loved ones. Some of the articles are well documented, but others have only brief descriptions and details. All are listed in the hope of attracting additional information to enhance the memory of these fallen airmen, thus providing detailed accounts to relatives searching for information, who in turn we hope may also be able to provide additional material. Every page presented here today on our site of remembrance is also archived by The British Library, in the memory of these boys for eternity.

Die Gesellschaft begrüßt alle Details, die es uns ermöglichen, Informationen zu bestehenden Seiten hinzufügen oder neue Erinnerungsseiten für gefallene Flieger oder Veteranen zu erstellen. Wenn Sie Fotografien, Dokumente, Briefe usw. beitragen wollen, die es uns ermöglichen, die Informationen zu verbessern oder eine neue Erinnerungsseite für einen besonderen Menschen auf dieser Homepage zu erstellen, nutzen Sie bitte die Kontaktseite, die Sie durch das Klicken auf den Kontakt-Link erreichen, und folgen Sie den Anweisungen . Bitte denken Sie daran, Details zu Quellen und den Autoren Ihrer Materialien beizufügen, so dass alle relevanten Würdigungen für alle Beiträge ordnungsgemäß gutgeschrieben werden können.

The Society welcomes any details that will enable us to add details to existing pages, or to create new remembrance pages for fallen airman or veterans. If you wish to contribute photographs - documents - letters etc. that will enable us to improve or create a new remembrance page for someone special to you on this website, please use the contact page in our get in touch link, and follow the instructions.
