Kiel Bugt (her) på en mark ved Nakke/Emtekær,  Tanderup Sogn. Alle ombordværende blev dræbt. H. de Gray Griffiths og C.J. Woodmass blev begravet den 22. maj 1944, mens der ikke foreligger oplysninger om begravelsesdatoen for de øvrige. Begravelserne synes at være

(here) crashed into a field at Nakke/Emtekær, the parish of Tanderup. All on board were killed.
