On the night of 16th to 17th June 1941 the Wellington-bomber N2849 of the Royal Air Force 103 squadron crashed in the Belgian town of Hamont (north-eastern part of Belgium). The complete crew of six lost their lives.

In the cemetery at Hamont five of the six crew members were temporarily buried. At the funeral the townspeople paid tribute to the deceased airmen and laid flowers on the graves. An original photo of the decorated graves is preserved by the local heritage society and history association De Goede Stede Hamont.

After the war, the six crew members were reburied in the military cemetery at Heverlee (Leuven).
