Svensköp 1944
Mission Szczecin
On the afternoon of August 29 had a mechanic put the team in order to Lancaster bomber HK594. The bombs were loaded and the ammunition to the guns tape and laid in boxes. Ground staff had done everything possible to "their" flygargrabbar would get the best possible conditions to survive the night's mission. Lancaster was part of the New Zealand 75 squadron, but crews were generally from all possible corners of the British Empire. The goal of the night's bombing was the North German city of Stettin (now Szczecin, Poland).

Avro Lancaster, RAF, with a crew of seven. It produced more than 7000 such bombers, of which about half were lost during war.

Above the North Sea they tested guns and the course took over the squadron into Denmark and the first German anti-aircraft positions. HK594 came unscathed through this barrier and flew in over the Swedish territory. The next change of course would be of Bornholm, but so far not had time. German night hunting in the area and operated at 2000 meters above the Swedish coast of the projectiles hit the plane from machine guns. The head was Ystad Corporal Henry Nilsson, staring up at the pitch black night sky. Anti-aircraft batteries had shot guns and eldtillstånd frantically against invisible targets. Bangs from 7.5-inch gun was deafening, and one of his gunners ran the blood from his ears.

Messerschmitt Bf 110-aircraft guns ragged cuts of Lancaster tail section and made heavy levers. Causley, who manned the rear machine gun, were hit and died instantly likely. King had major problems controlling the aircraft and eyewitnesses saw the machine in a wide arc swung back into the Swedish soil. The pilot wanted to improve the chances if the men were forced to abandon the Lancaster, but at that moment the German night fighter, made a new attack. The crew was ordered out of the burning plane while King sat there and tried to keep the fully loaded bomber reasonably stable. As a pilot, it was his duty to give their peers the best possible starting position for the jump. In all but the dead aft shooter was out, also made it out of Lancaster. He triggered the parachute and floated down to the ground while the unmanned bomber plane continued its journey in the darkness.

The black larger aircraft symbol and the line, from Denmark to Skåne's south coast and on to Bornholm and back into the Scania, shows Lancaster Planet's last flight route. The two smaller aircraft symbols indicate the German attack on the English bomber. Fall uthopp screens display items for the crew. The red cross marks the crash site.

The families in the small community Scanian Svensköp (see map) heard the mighty roar. Windows and crockery rattled when the plane by four Rolls-Royce Merlin engines rapidly approaching ground. Bomber went full force into a moraine hill near a road, one kilometer from the society itself. The explosion was huge when the bombs exploded. Window panes were blown out in buildings several hundred yards away and flew roofs of barns. Distorted elements from the fuselage, wings and engine were thrown up to two kilometers from the crash site. Although acts shooter's body was torn to pieces and spread out in the terrain.

King reached safe ground near the village Tollarp. Some locals caught sight of the Englishman when he was tagging on the gravel road. They gave him some food and waited for Swedish military personnel. Yet he knew nothing about the fate of his comrades.

For three days in April 2009 implemented the National Heritage Board battleground teams a research study in Svensköp. The goal was to find the crash site and perhaps find traces which might shed more light on the HK594's last hours. The project is also part of Bringitolife series (documentary films), which aims to highlight the archaeological work on the particular battleground. The fieldwork was done in collaboration with the local history society, Forced Landing Collection (FLC) and police technical team in Malmö. The latter was also on hand to take care of non unexploded / unused ammunition and any human remains.

Although it was generally forbidden to photograph the places where foreign aircraft went down, Bertil Stridh (provided it is local history museum in Svensköp), managed to take a surreptitious photo showing the location of the site clearance work.

A rough piece of painted aluminum. The standard red letters written
review: RGE N. The full word is: EMERGENCY (A. Emergency) Probably will piece from inside the hull, perhaps from uthopp door or from any of the fire fighting Arnas places.

Although today is a power line road through the area and we have taken to the gravel road construction sites, the group could identify the location of the photographer stood. This helped us in continuing the search for crash site center.

Metal detectors beeped constantly, and the dominant signature was marked for aluminum. Lancaster plan was built of wood, canvas, steel, aluminum and plexiglass in the cockpit, machine gun towers and side windows. All these categories of material found in the moraine hill. We also took advantage of parts of the fuselage where the paint will help to identify where the pieces sat. Also found parts from engines which shows that the plane probably was intact when it hit the ground. Flight Historians Bengt Hermansson and Nicklas Östergren worked in parallel with the sorting and record each individual finds.

Lancaster was equipped with Browning (usually 30 cal.), But the British version only appeared in the "303", that is 7.7 mm. This was the same ammunition used in the infantry Lee Enfieldge rifle and the caliber was fairly ineffective when it came to shoot down hostile fighters. There was even squadrons which unofficially ordered his archers to shoot not at all as long as it was estimated that the enemy has not seen the plane. It was felt that the chances of survival were greater as long as the Germans were able to push in on the source of the track lights.

Battlefield team located initially a few cartridge cases to guns, but it has since been judged to be the center of the depression was found taped plastic ammunition cartridge which still come up through the rusted metal links. The bands were nedkörda the moraine with a few meters apart, and the shells were most likely derived from the machine gun in the nose.

Mats and Jesper from the technical division of the load live ammunition. Cartridges can be taken to the experts on disarmament.

When the King ordered his men to jump out, Lancaster had still been above the Baltic Sea. The Swedes were looking for two days, and it was found in the water outside Åhus bodies of Sergeant Don Moon and Sergeant Hill. The others are still reported as missing in action. The remains of Sergeant Causley, who accompanied the bomber in the crash, were collected in a small wooden box.

In a sunny wooded, inland in southern Sweden is machine-gun cartridges that were designed to be used during the Second World War aerial combat over Germany. Rust stains are tracks from submachine bands.

It is about a centimeter-sized push-button lock to come from the dead Sergeant Causleys parachute. He was the only one left on the plane when it hit the ground and exploded.

Morning after the crash came Henry Nilsson to the site along with some from the air defense department in Ystad. The crew was credited for shooting down and it was with mixed emotions they saw the devastation. The three dead were buried in the British military honors September 7 in Helsingborg. King was detained a short time in Sweden, but was sent home on 10 October. He later settled on the island of Guernsey in the English Channel.

Governor Henry Nilsson as 65 years later is back on the crash site in Svensköp. In the background work Lars Winroth from battlefields team.
