New Memorial For Missing Airman

On the 26th September 2015 myself, David and Alex King together with our northern researcher Mick Hegney travelled to Scotland to unveil a small memorial cross. The wooden cross is dedicated to missing 19 year old Luftwaffe gunner Werner Walter who perished with his crew during the night of 24/25.03.1943. The crew were on operations to Edinburgh but was attacked by an RAF nightfighter and crashed 4 miles east of Earlston. The memorial has been placed near to the crash site of their Junkers Ju 88. Also attending was the daughter of the fallen pilot, she was only six months old when her father failed to return. Her son Henning also attended and kindly presented us with a wonderful picture memorial book of the life of Paul Rogge, the ill fated pilot.

The full story will be added to our website very soon!
