    Default Keith Oliver Perry RCAF

    I am researching the graves of lost airmen in former East Prussia whose bodies were not recovered due to Russian intransigence after the war. Most were lost in the two raids over Königsberg but W/O Keith Oliver Perry was a POW captured when Halifax DT723 was shot down on the way back from Essen in April 1943. He was 2nd dickey and all bar one of the crew survived and became POWs. He died of natural causes in August 1943 at Heydekrug. I have all the details from the Ancestry files but looking at the Canadian Virtual War Memorial there are other photographs purporting to show Perry's funeral. Link here.

    There is no clue as to the origin of the images and I wondered if anyone had any idea where they came from, and if indeed they are Perry's funeral. Trying to find out from the website host would be tricky.

    Thanks in advance
