    HENKER, Walter
    LUCKHARDT, Heinrich Christian

    Both lost in Ju-88A-1 W/Nr. 7058 9K+DL. Lukchard's bodt was recovered on October 14th 1940, which could explain the different places of burial.

    See: http://www.aircrewremembered.com/Kra...rch_type=exact

    ALPERS, Theodor
    GOLIATH, Willi
    POHL, Hans

    These three were in the crew of He-111P-2 W/Nr. 2146 G1+GL of KG55.

    See: http://www.aircrewremembered.com/Kra...rch_type=exact

    DORAWA, Paul
    SCHOLZ, Heinz
    SCHULZ, Erich

    These three were in Ju-88A-1 W/Nr. 2151 3Z+GH of KG77, shot down by F/O Kowalski of 302 Sqn.

    >> Dorawa was in the crew of Ju88A-1 2151 3Z+GH of 1./KG77, shot down at Bury St Edmunds
    >> Luckhardt was in 9K+DL (above)
    >> Pass on the other two

    Full serial of the 53 Sqn Blenheim was T2045.
    It might also be worth noting that two of the deaths on this day were "died of wounds":
    JEBB - shot down 15 Sep 40
    LOCHHEAD - crashed on the night of 8/9 Jun 40

    Hello,

    Re: 41718 P/O Clifford Molyneux LOCHHEAD RAF.

    Lochhead did not, "die of wounds". Yes, he was injured in the crash of No.49 Sqn Hampden I L4044 on 8/9 June 1940 BCL(rev.ed)/147, but that was not the :"Cause of Death".

    From the No.49 Sqn ORB:

    18/9/40 - 41718 P/O. C. M. Lochhead died at 2359 hours on 18/9/40 as a result of motor cycle accident.

    AIR 27/480/21
    1940 Sept 01 - 1940 Sept 30

    18 September, 1940; Motor Cycle Tragedy: At 23.59hrs on the night of Wednesday 18th September, Clifford Lockhead [sic] (aged 20) was killed in a motor cycle accident. The young officer is buried in St. John's Churchyard, Scampton.

    Lochhead, "DIED ON ACTIVE SERVICE". CWGC quotes Date of Death as 19 September 1940.
