They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.At the going down of the sun and in the morning,We will remember them.



Rest in peace.

For a little more information and to answer a question raised on the articles comments section, the German pilot, Helmut Eberspächer was born on 18th of Novenmber 1915 in Tübingen.

In 1934 he volunteered for the Army , serving in an armoured reconnaissance battalion. Later he studied mechanical engineering and in 1939 he transferred to the Luftwaffe.

He served with KG51, NSGr. 20 and SKG 10.

He survived the war as a Captain and joined his cousins Dr Richard and Walter Eberspacher in the family business making, among other things, the night heater that still bears their name today.

He died in Germany on 19th June 2011 aged 95.

I helped a member from another forum report another possibly located Bomber missing since may 1940. The aircraft and 3 crew were never found and it looks like this gent has located it by accident. He found some rather large parts on the surface and the aircraft serial number on one part matches the missing plane. The JCCC are investigating so I hope we find another 3 missing airman.
