RAF losses 28th of March 1942

Post  Laksevaag on Thu 11 Apr 2013 - 13:06

I am trying to find out more about a RAF loss off the westcoast of Norway. I think it must have been some place between Marstein Lighthouse and the island Fedje.
28th of March 1942 a torpedobomber with the crew of four was MIA. One of them was Sgt Walter Duckworth.
The crew was found in the sea and buried.

I wonder if there is someone who might got more?

It seems that the information about the area where they was shot down was wrong.
Two of the crew was found the same day as they was KIA, They are buried at Sola.

I just wonder if anyone has more information?

Thanks Linzee!

Seems I also need help from people who got information about Seekomm + FlakGruko,

This plane might have been shot down near Holmengrå 28/3.1942. They also might have shot another aircraft 11/4-42

Anyone?
