    Hello,

    CANADA.

    BUSCH, Heinrich GAF.

    Fw Heinrich Busch was the pilot of a 4./KG 53 Heinkel H-3 WNr 3349 A1+CM, that was brought down by a PAC device* whilst attacking Watton airfield on 18 February 1941:

    Ff: Fw Heinrich Busch EKI Wounded/PoW
    Bo: Obltn Erich Langguth EKI PoW
    Bf: Uffz Werner Schmoll EKI PoW
    Bm: Uffz Otto Ludwig EKI Slightly injured/PoW
    Bs: Gefr Karl Kamermeier EKII Wounded/PoW

    Fw Heinrich Busch was sent to Canada where he was tried and executed on 18th December, 1946, for the murder of fellow PoW, Uffz Dr. Karl Lehmann on 11th September, 1944. Both are buried in Woodland Cemetery, Kitchener, Canada.

    See:
    Luftwaffe Crash Archive:A Documentary History of Every Enemy Aircraft Brought Down over the United Kingdom. Vol.7 - 1st January 1941 to 16th April 1941.
    Parker,Nigel
    Walton-on-Thames:Red Kite,2015.
    pp.800-803

    * Parachute-and-Cable device.

    Also being involved in the hanging of LEHMANN, it would appear that Willi MUELLER, Bruno PERZONOWSKI and Walter WOLF (Afrika Korps), suffered the same fate.

    Bruno PERZONOWSKI was aboard 3./KG 28 Heinkel He 111 H-3 WNr 3803 1T+EL, that crashed into Llwytmor Mountain near Aber, Snowdonia, on 14 April, 1941, during a shipping reconnaissance mission to Liverpool Bay and Barrow. Perzonowski was badly injured (LCA7/879).

    Fw Willi MUELLER (actually MULLER, umlaut over U), is believed to have been aboard 2./106 Ju 88 A-5 WNr 0662 M2+CK which failed to return from attacking the Glasgow Docks on 6/7 May, 1941 (LCA8/927).

    Col is correct,
    Busch, Mueller, Perzonowsky and Wolf were all hanged for the murder of Carl Lehman (Afrika Corps) along with child murderer Sherman Staley in Canada's second largest and last mass hanging. All 4 were originally buried at Lethbridge Jail and later re interred.
    Willi Mueller was born in Klein-Gorschitz,Schlesinen 18/2/1914, was shot down in Ju 88 A-5 WNr 0662 M2+CK which crashed near Lennoxtown and spent 6 months in hospital with a broken back Muller Jooined the Luftwaffe in 1935.
    The only other survivor from the Ju 88, Ernst Langanki, was interviewed as part of the murder investigation but was not implicated or at Medicine Hat at the time.
