I am the son of JG Moriarty the Navigator on a Whitley V BD201-L shot down and crashed near Wervershoof by a german night fighter following the 1000 bomber raid on Bremen. The flight was from 10 OTU stationed in Abingdon.

I would be interested in any information any one has.

I visited my fathers grave in Bergen Op Zoom in June 2006.

Flt. Sgt Earl Stewart Rheaume, R111159 RCAF Iroquois Squadron, KIA.

On June 12th 1943 his Wellington HE 392 Bomber was returning to England from a bombing raid on Dusseldorf Germany. It was shot down just short of the English Channel by a German Nightfighter.

My father and his four comrades were all killed when their aircraft crashed into a farmers field in North Holland.

My fathers body was recovered almost immediately following the crash and buried by German soldiers and Dutch farmers. He was the tail gunner and was thrown away from the crash upon impact. His comrades were recovered some fifty years later by the ARG. All are buried within fifty yards of each other in the Bergen Op Zoom Canadian Military Cemetery.

My visit to Holland was filled with wonderful caring and sharing memories from several German and Dutch families who fed and housed me.

I will return to Holland and my Dad's grave to be sure.

I am looking for information about an aircraft discovered in the IJsselmeer. ED603 OL-L.
An engine and various parts were salvaged in 1997.
Does anyone have any other information about this wreckage. It was that of my uncle CFJ Sprack.
Does any one know if the aircraft has been salvaged or if there were any remains found on the aircraft.
Hoping for more info.

Gentlemen,

What a great site, and what a fine job you are doing to document the fates of the brave men from all sides of WWII.

Do you record the Werknummern of the Luftwaffe aircraft engines you recover? If so, can copies of the numbers be obtained?

Mike....I am not sure I understand your post. Did you mean that you had information about Halifax HR713 Gamble crew?

Thanks...Chris

Very neat site! I am particulary interested in the wrecks found (or waiting to be found) in lake IJsselmeer as I beleive my great uncles' plane (Halifax II HR 713 408 squadron RCAF lost on April 3/4 1943) may be there. According to one on-line source, it is 13 km W Harderwijk. Anyway, hard to beleive that it is possible wreck might one day be found. Keep up the great work!
