German airmen casualties

Post by Peter Moon » 06 Apr 2002 11:05

I'm trying to obtain photos of two German airmen, Unterofizzier Gerhard Dant and Oberleutnant Alfred Simm, or their graves, of Gruppe
6 Kgs 4 (sic) who were killed when their JU88 crashed on Buxey Sand, off the
Essex coast .They were interred in Brightlingsea churchyard on 1 March 1944
but their remains were taken to Cannock Chase German Cemetery in January
Can you help, please, or forward this to someone who can?

Just out of curiosity, what do you mean by "international" websites?

if you aren't in too m uch of a hurry I'll take a couple of photos at Cannock for you on my next visit, I used to live just down the road but we moved and I visit about once a year at the moment.

Send me a PM with your name & address and I'll post them when I've got them,
