Loss of airman over England August 1942
 
Hi,

Could anyone tell me more details concerning the loss of a Unteroffizier Heinz Schmidt who was killed on the 10th August 1942 over England. I know he was a bordfunker in a bomber squadron and possibly involved in the attack on Colchester but would like to find out in which unit and details about aircraft and other crew.

with thanks

Rick

Hi Rick,

From Luft. Loss Returns Do217E-4 F8+EC II/KG40 5478 Ff Ofw Helmuth Metz m-+, B Ofw.Paul Olbrich m-+, Bf Uffz.Heinz Schmidt m-+, Bm Uffz. Willi Schmiedla m. The date shown is 10-8-42 but whether this was the 9/10 attack aimed at Peterborough (see Ulf Balkes KG2 book) or the 10/11th attack on Colchester I do not know. The bodies of Metz and Olbrich were picked up by the Germans while Schmidt was washed ashore Denmark,
