    Hello

    UK
    TURNER, George - P/O - 59291 - the Nottingham Journal of November 22nd 1947 reported that he was killed when attempting a forced landing in his Hornet, which crashed in a field next to R.A.F. Church Fenton.

    Hornet F. Mk. 1 PX233: https://aviation-safety.net/wikibase/wiki.php?id=212180

    TENDICK, Gottfried - GAF - the Western Daily Press of December 17th 1947 reported that he and fellow prisoner Erwin Otto Abraszkiewicy [sic - Abraszkiewicz, of the German Army], both of 124 P.o.W. Camp, Totworth, were killed when the coach in which they were travelling collided with a lorry carrying 45 cases of fragmentation bombs. The collision occurred at Berkeley Heath.
    The jury found that the collison was due to the lorry being on the wrong side of the road, causing the side of the coach to be torn away, inflicting the injuries to the two German prisoners.

    Regards

    Simon
