On August 29, 1944 a RAF Lancaster crashed into the North sea outside of the town of Falkenberg, Halland in Sweden. Falkenberg is my mom's birthtown and my grandmom and my aunt lives there. Halland is located here: (The dark blue area, not the red dot) This is the info I found about RAF's history of the 29 of August, 1944: 29/30 August 1944 402 Lancasters and 1 Mosquito of Nos 1,3, 6 and 8 Groups ordered to Stettin. 23 Lancasters lost, 5.7 per cent of the force. This was a successful raid, hitting parts of Stettin which had escaped damage in previous attacks. 189 Lancasters of No 5 Group carried out one of the most successful No 5 Group attacks of the war on Königsberg at extreme range. Only 480 tons of bombs could be carried because of the range of the target but severe damage was caused around the 4 separate aiming points selected. This success was achieved despite a 20 minute delay in opening the attack because of the presence of low cloud; the bombing force waited patiently, using up precious fuel, until the marker aircraft found a break in the clouds and the Master Bomber, Wing Commander J Woodroffe, probably No 5 Group's most skilled Master Bomber, allowed the attack to commence. Bomber Command estimated that 41 per cent of all the housing and 20 per cent of all the industry in Königsberg were destroyed. There was heavy fighter opposition over the target and 15 Lancasters, 7.9 per cent of the force, were lost. Support and 93 training aircraft on a diversionary sweep over the North Sea, 53 Mosquitos bombing Berlin, Hamburg and 4 other targets, 35 RCM sorties, 49 Mosquito patrols, 31 Lancasters and 12 Halifaxes minelaying off Baltic ports, 8 aircraft on Resistance operations. 2 OTU Wellingtons from the sweep and 1 Lancaster minelayer lost. Total effort for the night: 873 sorties, 41 aircraft (4.7 per cent) lost. One of these Lancasters crashed in Falkenberg and on their gravestones in Skogskyrkogården it says: I wonder if it's possible to get out any more information about these men. A low quality picture of a memorial in '94. Just sharing some pics and info, I always thought these graves were mysterious when I visited my granddads grave when I was younger.
