It appears that speculation exists as to the fate of four crew member to F/Sgt Kirtons crew who were lost over MANNHEIM 5/6 September 1943.
'Beware of the Dog at War' plotted history of 49 Sqd eludes to the fact that having parachuted to safety they fell to hostile action resulting in death.
Clearly this thought must have emulated from somewhere can anyone assist in any known route to investigate further.
It appears the entire crew escaped, two became prisoners of war, one parachute failed to operate or the wearer was unable to operate it and the remaining four failed to survive.
Thank you for any assistance with this one.
