Searching for help on locating relatives/friends of the following crewmembers which all are buried at Heverlee War Cemeterie (B).

I am trying to have a monument erected at the village center of Molenbeersel to commemorate these young men.

03 June 1942 12 Sqn Wellington II Z8533 PH-V Ops: Essen

F/S DIMMOCK HARROLD EDGAR 404819 RAAF PILOT KIA

Sgt CUSHWAY REGINALD CECIL 1375218 RAF (VR) OBSERVER KIA

Sgt SMITH D.V. AIR BOMBER POW

P/O KING O'D D.W. WIRELESS OP. POW

Sgt FERGUSON ROBINSON 1005492 RAF (VR) AIR GUNNER KIA

Of this aircraft I have very little information!

Dear Jempy,

it is a longshot but you could probably try to obtain the casualty file for the R.A.A.F. pilot from the Australian National Archives. They have a website (sorry, I don't have the address) and apparently you can order the file online but will have to pay the appropriate fee.

I know that these casualty files are usually comprehensive and will probably also have statements from the surviving crew members.

Regards
