Do 217E-4 serial number 4242 crashed in the North Sea 10/8 1942.


The aircraft belonged to 2./ KG 2 and was coded U5+TK.
T/o 23:30 Gilze-Rijen. Op: Attack on Birmingham.


It is quite possible that this is the Do 217 that S/Ldr. Barham of 29 Sqn claimed at 7000 ft while flying a Beaufighter some 65 kilometres northeast of Happisburgh-Light.

Pilot Feldwebel Georg Zsckelmayer, Navigator Unteroffizier Johann Ferne and Wop Unteroffizier Günther Schröter has no known graves while the dead body of Engineer Unteroffizier Ulrich Lossack was found at sea on 10/10.
He was laid to rest in Lemvig cemetery on 16/10 1942 with a German army chaplain officiating at the graveside ceremony.
