An Ebay listing mentioned on TOCH shows the crash site of 61 Sqn Hampden QR-U:

Although stated to be from 1942, it must be 1941 or earlier as the squadron had re-equipped with Manchesters by then.
As it is from a German seller it seems reasonable to assume that this was an operational loss.
Before I start digging into possible candidates, does anyone actually know the serial of QR-U please?
Thanks,
Andy
