    Can anyone tell me about this crash reported in the "Sun" (Sussex Newspaper) on 13th May 1942
    The clipping shows my father the officer inspecting a downed Luftwaffe Heinkel on the South Downs. Who shot it down the RAF or AA? Is there a report on the action?
    Where can I get a better quality picture?

    Any help appreciated - thank you
