I'm researching some local WW2 crashsites and came across a picture of a crash in Stockbury Kent. I was wondering if anyone has any info on whereabouts it came down, I know its in Squirrels Wood somewhere but its a big place. On the Aircrew rememberance site they give a Cassini ref but it doesn't tie up with my wartime maps. I tried Lashenden Airwarfare Museum, but found nothing pertaining to this incident but got info about the 110 that crashed in Borden that I was chasing. I know bits of Krafttshick's plane are in Tangmere and I'm planning a return journey to it as I was there on another mission at the time. I was just wondering as his watch and bits and pieces were found but no sign of the body itself? Thanks in advance. Spencer

Unfortunately not, I've not been able to find out any more info at all. I was interested in his case purely because he was somewhere in the woods that I used to MTB through, but info is scarce.
