LW crash night 13th October 1941 - Ile d'Arz (Morbihan)
 
Dear all,

I recently read on an old French Newspaper about the rescue of the Luftwaffe crew (the article mentions a LW Colonel) from a bomber that crashed on the night of 13th October 1941 near the Island of d'Arz (Ile D'Arz) on the Morbihan Coast.

The crew were rescued by Madames Hervé and Rie on small boats. Those women were later honored by the LW and Vichy Personel, etc...

My question is:
What was the plane, code, etc. and what were the crewmembers (names, ranks), etc.

What I found interesting is that the husband of Mme Hervé was in jail and was put free after she rescued the LW crew on that night!

Thanks
