Hello,

I'm looking for a comrade, who's especially interested

in the fate of the 2 Polish Crew Members, for any in-

formation regarding the above mentioned aircraft and

its crash on the 01.06.1942.

Thanks in advance

Volker Krappen

Hi Volker

The aircraft was a Vickers Wellington Mk. Ic. It and the entire crew were lost on an op against Essen.

The crew consisted of:

Pilot - Flight Lieutenant William Lang Tweedie - Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve

Navigator/Observer - Warrant Officer James Arthur Nutt - Royal Air Force

Flying Officer K. M. Eustachiewicz- Polish Air Force

Wireless Op/ Air Gunner - Sergeant Richard Arnold Brown - Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve

Sergeant S. Straigis - Polish Air Force

The crew are buried in the Rhineberg War Cemetery

Cheer...Chris
