 "På bombetogt mod Rostock (her) nedstyrtede et Wellington fly den 26. april 1942 ved Bevtoft, øst for Toftlund. Alle om bord blev dræbt.
De 6 dræbte flyvere blev begravet den 6. maj 1942 kl. 06.30. Marinepræst Graumann, Flensborg, foretog jordpåkastelsen." (FAF)
Sandsynligvis var det på samme måde som En begravelse  4 dage tidligere.

Se monument for besætningen på WEL X3633 rejst 1 km sydvest for den lille landsby Neder Jerstal og 4 km sydvest for Over Jerstal.

6 flyvere.


A Wellington crashed on 26. april 1942 at Bevtoft, east of Toftlund on a bombing raid to Rostock (here). All aboard perished.
The 6 killed airmen were buried on 6 May 1942 at 06:30. Navy Chaplain Graumann, Flensburg, officiated at the graveside. (Source: FAF)
Probably it was in the same way as A burial 4 days earlier.

See monument to the crew of WEL X3633 erected 1 km south west of  Neder Jerstal and 4 km south west of Over Jerstal.

This Vickers Armstrong Wellington, see also Vickers Wellington, was from No. 115 Squadron RAF - Wikipedia.
