This Wellington has long been thought to have crashed into the Waddenzee of the Island of Rottumeroog. The researchgroup has found many documents that show that the crew made a controlled ditching and travelled in their dinghy towards the Dutch coast. Also the possible resting place of the two members officially still Missing in Action now seems to be documented.
This 75 (NZ) Squadron loss still has 5 MIA’s although there is a possible connection to the anonymous body that was found on Engelsmanplaat 3 December 1941.
Today the first story of an aircraft is added to the website. Halifax W1107 crashed close to sea dike in Eenrum. Five of its crew managed to get out safe but Sergeant A.G. Parrott lost his life in this crash. His body was never recovered and he is commemorated at Runnymede.
After some hard work lostoverholland.nl is brought online. Over the next months the available information will be published here
