    Hello

    Correct spelling is Cayeux with a Y, not a V.

    Alex,

    HEISSE, Hans-Hermann - GAF.
    Ramsgate Cemetery, Kent.
    Cause ?
    >> Shot down in Bf109 of JG3

    SCHADE, Werner - GAF.
    Cannock Chase German Military Cemetery, Staffordshire.
    Cause ?
    >> Crew member of shot down Ju88 of Stab II./KG54. Two more were missing, one made POW

    WILSON, Robert Roy - P/O - 41513 - RAFVR.
    Hurricane I - P3595 - 111 Sqn.
    >> P3595 is also stated to have been damaged in combat on 15 Aug 40, landing at Hawkinge and later being SOC (refer Fighter Command Losses).
    So we have two incidents with the same serial. Any offers?

    Hello Andy,
    Yes re P3595,Wilson KNG 11th Aug, and McIntyre sI/WIA on the 15th Aug.
    Had not recognised the same serial number. Well spotted.
    I wonder if the two 111 Sqn events were reversed ?
    Forums database goes for Wilson.
    So will look up McIntyre.
    Database has R4188 for him, Air 81/1437.
