    Default Lancaster MkII DS813_29/07/1944-24/07/2021

    Hi,

    On Saturday 24 July 2021 a commemorative plaque was inaugurated to honour the crew of Lancaster DS813 of n°514 sqdn who lost their lives on the night of 29 July 1944 over Deinvillers (Vosges).

    This aircraft and aircrew had not previously been honoured by a commemorative plaque for this dramatic night during which 11 Lancasters were shot down in Lorraine (Moselle, Vosges, Meurthe-et-Moselle). The plaque is next to the church of Deinvillers, the location of their original burial place. Although the seven crew members are now buried in Choloy-Ménillot.
