    ...And it's quite possible they have been put down as army instead of air force...I guess a cross check on VDK will tell if there are errors

    Something adrift here.

    The excel file was supplied by Maidenhead about a month ago.

    Looking at the first entry you have gives from the excel file

    Hi

    re Geoff's list for Cannock, with the exception of Poncke, they are all Luftwaffe crews.

    Just checked Werner Knittel. His body was recovered in Sept 1973 from the wreck of Bf 109E-4, Werk num 5095.

    Regards
    Ross

    Postings crossed. So it looks like my numbers are the correct ones.

    Second error.
    Littlestone-on-Sea is not in Norfolk, but a small coastal village close to New Romney Kent.

    The Germains never landed in England in WW2.

    End of story.

    Our only problem is trying to convince others of the truth of that statement and that, I fear, would be a complete and utter waste of our time and effort.

    Have a good day !

    Winds, tides and currents can do strange things. One man lost from the 9th LCT flotilla (see my thread on 'Martin Long' or 'HMLCT 488') was found on the coast of Brittany in 1944. Most of the bodies of the lost were never recovered.
    The 'burnt from the waist down' reports seem very strange. Can anyone account for similar injuries or cause of death?

    Hmm...

    A few years ago I read about some French civilians who witnessed a German landing barge exercise loaded with troops end in disaster off the coast of France, straffed by some British aircraft causing a fuel leak that ignited killing a number of German soldiers. This was attributed to the story of the burned bodies as a partial explanation, as always could be fabricated or another tall tale.

    In relation to the possibility of items...including bodies!...floating all the way across the Channel...

    ...the war diary of No.5 Commando, temporarily stationed in St. Margaret's Bay, Dover, in the autumn of 1940, records that on the 30th of October a tin of German rations washed up in the Bay!!!

    Pretty sure there was a book about this 'failed invasion' with half burned bodies within the last five years or so... but I'm blowed if I can remember its title or author... I do recall that the cover photo was posed with re-enactors, if that sets anyone else's grey cells off.
