    Alex,
    Further info on P/O Mallon here:
    http://aircrewremembered.com/mallon-john-charles.html
    It says he was captured wounded, dying of his injuries three days later. Of note is the reference to the CWGC having the date of his death incorrectly recorded as 8 October 1940 (as can be seen in the photo of his grave). The current CWGC entry now says he died on 11 October 1940, so presumably the head stone will now have been amended.

    Johannsen was in the crew of Do17Z-3 2787/7T+HH of 1./606, which was attacked on a mission to Liverpool. He baled out but was killed. Another crew member baled out and was made POW. The aircraft returned to France.
    Richter was in the crew of Do17Z-3 3475/7T+EK of 2./606, shot down at Abersoch by Spitfires of 611 Sqn.
