K/M Nils Bjorn RASMUSSEN + RNAF Died october 1942 Ireland

Post  dp_burke on Tue 10 Mar 2009 - 23:55

I am writing from Ireland with a hope that someone might be able to help.

I am trying to contact family or friends of a Norwegian pilot who died in October 1942.

Kvm Nils Bjorn Rasmussen died on October 25 October 1942 when Douglas Boston BZ200 of which he was pilot of crashed in bog land outside Crossmolina, Mayo in Ireland.

Nils Rasmussen was buried in the local Irish cemetery at Kilmurray. Nils Rasmussen was born in Dybvåg on August 1917.

I visited his grave in 2008 and took some photos.

His grave stone has this incription on it.

I would like to contact the family of Nils Rasmussen to learn about this man who died here in Ireland and who was buried here far from his home in Norway. I list him on my website and I would like to get a photograph of him. I wrote to a local newspaper thiss year but have not heard from anyone in the Dybvåg region.

I contacted one of the survivors of the crash this year, he lives still in Canada. If a photo of Nil's exists anywhere in a Norwegian publication I would be interested to know.

with best regards from Ireland
