5/KG53, Do 17Z (2798) F1+BT Loss, 15/16.11.1940

Has anyone a copy of the NVM for this loss? Should be 9/KG76.

Surely 9./KG 76 with that code?

I stand corrected, bifocals is my excuse.

Hi Joe, I have 4 crew killed and buried in one grave at Cannock Chase 9-2-9. However, a fifth crewman, Fw. Rudolf Grömmer (B) remains missing. Unusual for a Dornier Do17 to carry 5 crewmen?

Thanks All,
There is some confusion in the EKM's listed in the burial records, Wagner has two, 51922/76 and 51922/94, Hoeckendorf has 71042/32, the NVM would be helpful.
Joe
