    Default 77 Squadron - 3-10-1943

    Buried in Hannover War Cemetery, "1.H.13": Sgt (Airgunner) Archibald MILLER - 1345237, (from Long Island, New York, USA), 77 Sqn (Elvington, Yorkshire).
    77 Sqn lost 3/4-10-1943 two Halifax aircraft (DT807 and LW269) on a raid to Kassel. Locations and fate of the crew are known.
    Sgt Miller must have baled out or shot off an aircraft that safely returned to base.
    Who has access to the 77 Sqn ORB; looking for the aircraft serial number.
    I may point out that two unknown airmen lie buried adjacent to Sgt Miller, grave locations "1.H.14 and 15".
    Regards and thanks for your help.
    Henk.

    Dear Henk,

    Archibald Miller was the airgunner of Halifax DT807 that crashed at Wernswig.

    The two unknows buried next to Miller could refer to the crew of Stirling EF158 but there is not enough evidence at the moment.

    regards

    Steve

    Thanks Steve. Checking Chorley's Vol.4 page 346 ascertained that I completely forgot to add Miller's name in my file. Thanks for the correction and also for the hint re the two unknown airmen buried next to Miller.
    Best regards,
    Henk.
