I mostly take photos, when I come by graves and memorial for lost WWII service men.. This summerholliday I came by the crash site of Stirling MK III EF 137 Code AA - E.. Unfortunately all members of the crew lost their lifes.. I will update as soon as posible with the photos of the Graves.. - As they rest quiet a bit away form crash site..
I post this in hope it can give "a little something" to some family members, relatives or researchers..

In danish, but photos - http://taasingearkiv.dk/wp-content/uplo ... ide-37.pdf

Such a nice thoughtful thing to do :thumbsup:

It all helps to give insight to those times, and for the families involved

The plane crashed on the small beautiful island "Tåsinge" - Some of the most beautiful landscapes in DK.. Marked in Red circle.. Graves are in black circle, and I live at the tip of yellow arrow.. Rynkeby, just south of Kerteminde.

Very detailed memorial, John, with the photos of the aircrew and crash artifacts.
About half a mile from me is a crash site memorial. Think it was a crew of 7 plus 2 residents. Was unaware of it for around 20 years until a memorial stone was put in.. May need to rake a photo next time I walk up there.
Cheers, :thumbsup:
Dave.
