Can anyone help me find the exact location of the Wellington bomber N2809 that crashed around Gun Hill, near Whitwick?
My Uncle "Vickers Graham" was a Sergeant Air Gunner on this fateful flight, BK43 crashed into a Paddock behind the Vicarage in Oakham Co Rutland,
I have Aerial Photo's of the Crash Site some months before & after the incident,
I have researched the tragic incident quite thoroughly and even contacted the Pilots Brother in NZ,
I would still like to know if anyone has further details of the incident, or what happened to the wreckage,
can any one tell me anything about a german plane the crashed in about 1945 in a field at claybrook magna ,my mum has been telling me about it today and would love to know more?
I am looking for the nephew of Robert C Simmons. If he could please contact me at Lori.email@example.com it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for this site. I am the nephew of 2nd Lt Robert C. Simmons who died 27 September 1944. He was with the 849th Bomber Squadron, 490th Bomber Group, Heavy. From the limited information I've been able to find the air craft name was Heavenly Body. Knowing there is a memorial marker near the crash site sent shivers through me, as I never knew about it. I do know, and have visited twice the grave at the American Cemetery in Cambridge England. If there are any living members who may have known my uncle, or if there are any photos of the crew, and or the air craft, I would love to see and or hear from you.
Thank you again.
Robert C. Simmons
