    Steve,

    Sgt Lloyd's details can be obtained from the Australian Department of Veteran's affairs:

    http://www.ww2roll.gov.au/script/veteran.asp?ServiceID=R&VeteranID=1013052

    408524 Sgt Lloyd, Sydney James
    DOB 19 Feb 1920
    etc

    Then, taking his service number you can use that as a search term at the Australian National Archives site:

    http://naa12.naa.gov.au/scripts/ResearcherScreen.asp

    Which can, for some Australian WW2 service personnel, reveal a digitised copy of the service record. Unfortunately, Sgt Lloyd's record has yet to be digitised. Though there are two records identified with archives.

    For a fee it is possible to have them digitised.

    Default 3 OTU - 1-2-1943 (Overhill)

    Steve,
    The body of Overhill was washed ashore 30-4-1943 near Dunsum and initially buried St.Nicolai-Friedhof (cemetery) at Wyk, on the East Frisian island Föhr.

    Hello,

    first of all I`d like to thank you for the informations.

    I have to give a little correction:

    Föhr belongs to the North Frisian islands. (Sorry Henk)

    I have researched the german archives but until today I haven't found the german report on this Wellington. But maybe I'll get further details about the circumstances of the loss from Lloyds service record.

    If I get a copy I'm happy to share the informations with you.

    regards

    Steve
