Den 30. august 1944 styrtede LAN EE193 i Kattegat nordvest for
Sejerø, måske omkring her. Flyvehistorisk Tidsskrift skriver:

"403 RAF bombefly fløj til Stettin (Szczecin her), medens 189 Lancasters bombede Königsberg (Kaliningrad, her). 38 Lancasters gik tabt.
Over den
nordlige del af Storebælt rapporteredes et bombefly nedskudt af en tysk natjager ca. kl. 01.00.

Liget af flight engineer F/Sgt Geoffrey Wilkinson Battersby blev fundet ilanddrevet ved Reersø den 4. september (måske omkring her), og to dage senere
blev han begravet på Reersø Kirkegård. Resten af besætningen har ingen kendt grav." (FT 88-41-33)
TV-Kalundborg havde dette indslag 1:35 om mindehøjtidelighed 4. maj 2013 for Danmarks befrielse. Det er nu en tradition i Reersø.
