I found this location in "Peel en Maas" about 2 weeks ago. There is only a small information board with the text: R.A.F. and date 1944 okt 28 and 4 deads/doden.

My father in Law - Nick Gray (Nicholas Grapanovich) was with those 17 attached engineers on the the first wave on Easy Red. His actions on D-Day earned him a Bronze Star and he lived to be 100 years old.

I would like to submit a photo and newspaper article for my cousin Eugene F Cummings. Thanks! Rebecca Hamlin Kawa

Thank you very much for honoring and remembering my uncle. He was the oldest brother of my mom and she remembered him until the day she died in 2020. She told me many stories about him and how much she loved him.

I volunteer at Biggin Hill Memorial Museum. We have acquired a Merlin engine, which is said to have come from Hurricane V6601. I'd be interested if anyone can throw any light on the recovery of this engine. The plane crashed into the River Colne near Brightlingsea after F/O Henderson baled out. Essex Aviation Group Archaeology appear to have recovered parts of the aircraft in 1979, but there's no mention of their recovering the engine.

Hi. I live near Tiefenbronn, Germany. There's a marker in a field here that this aircraft crashed there on 27.4.1944. Did you know this?
