    Can anybody assist with the location of the crash of this aircraft which was lost on Ops to Essen on 25/10/44. I have the crew details.

    Many thanks

    Eddie,
    An unconfirmed note that the location was near Kleve (known of the Reichswald Forest War Cemetery).
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Hi Eddie
    Chorley "In Brave Company" ,which is about 158 Sqn Operations, records that the A/c was brought down by Flak over the target and the crew of MZ734 successfully baled out in"the vicinity of Kleve". He doesn't say where the a/c actually came to earth.
    Regards

    Thanks Henk and Dick

    I'll try to get my hands on the liberation questionaires and see if they have anything more precise (also I suspect Bill will have already gone down that route)

    Cheers

    Eddie
