Thanks Simon, I had a look at your site, stared at the word KEEPITURYENS for a few seconds before realising it was Excalibur!
They did wonder why Combe,a tiny tiny village had the occasional bomb dropped. I know of one German air crash at Laindon, a Messerschmitt Bf-110 which came down at Kennel Lane (the reference I am looking at says this is at Laindon Common). Given the exact date, you could look at the local newspaper on microfilm for the days after 15/08/40. If I come across anything while looking at Parker, I will let you know. There is a photo of Gefr Becker and the photo you mention? The bombs just missed the railway station and I had a wonderful top 3/4 view of the aircraft as it turned after off-loading its bombs and flew south beneath the cloud layer.
If this does not sound right, do you have an idea as to the date?
For those of you Who are interested in who the Pilot was Below is his details. Hi Ray, I have the full set of Lufwaffe crashes in ww2 by red hill books, I did find the 109 crash that you refer to in Volume 2 of my books, amazing that your mother witnessed the whole thing, it would have been certain to have a profound affect on her. The widow was able to put the record straight. Hope this helps a bit ….Keith Williams. Does anyone have details of the Heinkel 111 that is the subject of this eye witness account concerning the daylight raid on the north east on 15 August 1940? Is there any way I can send the photograph to you for your perusal and comments. not a lot of info on the crew on Lufftwafe sites ,Hope your well. Lamberti, Feldwebelz Raab. My father was a POW in Canada with Helmut Gall. I know a plane did come down near the Gypsum mine but have found an aerial photo of woodland nearby with what looks like a crater in it, jettisoned bomb maybe, and habe found strange pieces of aluminium in the woods near the “crater”. When we saw those four white crosses we had hiked up through Ratton Woods, then over to Jevington, then to Litlington. I know there is a grave for a German in the local churchyard and assume he was one of the crew. She says she recalls hearing the guns and seeing red bullets (presumably tracer) and after a while the guns stopped and they flew off in different directions. Thanks, yes, that’s me on PPRuNe (and a few other sites) trying to see if anyone can provide a reason for them to have been taken from King’s Somborne (where the vicar had offered to have them buried) and then “lost”. Can anyone identify this crash and help us find more information or records to put on display in the village? It would be good if this is your aircraft as there are a lot of photos of it on the ground, even some cine footage in existence. called Annacey, which I have since found out is now apartments, but as young children we were taken for walks from there which means the crash was within relative walking distance of there . Again there are inconclusive stories associated with this crash, with one crewman allegedly being Polish and of the aircraft being on fire as it crashed leading Needham to wonder if accounts of this crash were not being confused with that of another? A photo therein is of at least 4 Do-!7s flying very low over the sea, close to the Seven Sisters (South Downs). I know the exact location and even after all these years you can still smell the fuel in the soil.
