Persoonlijk verhaal : Lyle Edward Bowes

Om 23:21 uur gestart van Spilsby, Lincolnshire – stortte ter hoogte van het Zeeuws/ Zuidhollandse kustgebied in de Noordzee.
Ook deze machine – het kan (welhaast) niet anders – moet tussen 02:24 – 02:35 uur het slachtoffer zijn geworden van de Duitse Nachtjagd.
