Robert,

I now believe the following details are correct for this crash:
13th May 1940
Bf 110 C-1
2N+HN
W. Nr. 2837
Uffz. Schindler (Pilot)
Ogefr. Heinze (Bordfunker)
Force-landed and crashed into trees on edge of field near La Roche-en-Ardenne. Damage %age not known.
Both crew survived.


Thanks for your help in working this one out.

To all those involved, congratulations for the amazing thread!

Some 20-25 years ago, this would be almost impossible. Computers, Internet and Forums like this one do give the opportunity to discover and match events of 79 years ago...

John Vasco, I had some of your books and your work on this thread and on the books I have read is amazing. Keep going!

Again, an amazing thread and piece of History!

A.

It was a private dispute between one member and another which the poster was asked to pursue through private means. Unfortunately he appeared unreceptive to this request.
