Police Report 22 May 1944
Police Officer Dreyer of Give had arrived at the place. The aircraft had been involved in aerial combat over Øster Nykirke and crashed in flames near the Horsens - Brande railway, north-west of Vesterlund. A part of the aircraft was found near Dørken where two or three bodies were found. The Wehrmacht have cordoned off the site along with the Civil Defence from Vejle. At 15:30, Captain Broberg announced that there were no bombs or mines in the aircraft. The track was cleared. Rail services can resume.
Near Vesterlund, the German
Wehrmacht has unearthed four partially-charred bodies. The railway track is
filled with burning wreckage from the aircraft. Near Dørken
25 May : The bodies of the eight airmen had been allowed by the Germans to lie out in the open until the evening of 24 May, when the Wehrmacht from Give removed them.
