    He was in the crew of Do17Z-2 2573 5K+CS of 8./KG3, shot down by Hurricanes of 46 Sqn near Bexley, Kent on the 3-11-40 (see that entry, and the following day, for other crew members). He died of his wounds on 5 November.

    They were 3 of the 5 crew of He111H-2 3144/A1+KM of 4./KG53 which crashed in the Humber Estuary. The bodies of the other 2 crew members were never recovered.

    Alex,
    I don't think there is any reason to doubt that this was R3757, despite AIR81/4107 stating L8732 (this aircraft was lost with 54 OTU on 9 Dec 41)
    Note also that AIR81/4107 states that Sgt Whalen was killed, whereas he in fact survived until 12 Jun 42.
