Halifax II BB200 crashed in the North Sea 20/6-1942.

The aircraft belonged to RAF 78 Sqn. Bomber Command and was coded EY-?
T/O 23:43 Moddleton St. George. OP: Emden.

Halifax BB200 crashed into the North Sea. Air Bomber Sgt Robert K. Frankland rests in Kiel war Cemetery while Observer Sgt Ronald W. Morgan is claimed to rest in Fovrfelt cemetery, Esbjerg.
When and where the body of Morgan was found and when is was buried is not clear since the Cemetery protocol states that he was laid to rest on 5/9-1941. And that can hardly be right.
There is no doubt that the person resting in grave 19, row 14, section A was laid to rest on 5/9-1941. And that is where Morgan is claimed to rest.

Pilot F/S Mostyn M. Crowe, Flt. Engr Sgt David Smith BEM, W/Op. Sgt Edward K. Davies, Air Gnr. Leon H. Seal and Air Gnr. Sgt James R. Williams have no known graves and are commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial.
