    Default Memorials for Non Commonwealth Airmen with no known grave

    I have three members of a No. 35 Squadron crew who are not recorded on the Runnymede Memorial (along with the other members of the crew) as they were non-commonwealth airmen. This made me wonder if there are memorials, similar to Runnymede, around the world where these airmen are remembered.

    The three non-commonwealth members of the crew were: SJ Hausvik, F Haagensen and O Flaaten (Norwegians) and I would like to know if their sacrifice is recorded anywhere

    Any thoughts?

    Regards

    Pete

    Main areas of research:

    - CA Butler and the loss of Lancaster ME334 (http://rafww2butler.wordpress.com/ )
    - Aircrew Training (Basic / Trade / Operational / Continuation / Conversion)
    - The History of No. 35 Squadron (1916 - 1982) (https://35squadron.wordpress.com/)

    It doesn't answer your question, Pete, but this website (and several others) http://www.aircrewremembered.com/Bom...&o=Name&d=desc has the men as Norwegians.

    Sorry, my error (trying to do too many things at once); I have amended my original post.

    Thanks for keeping me on the straight and narrow

    Regards
