Re: British war crimes involving Luftwaffe aircrew 31 August 1940

Do 17Z Wn.2361 F1+FH of 1./KG 76 was downed over central London and "the pilot baled out and came down at Kennington, where he was fiercely attacked by the crowds, who tore his parachute and harness to shreds".

K Report & LCA. Again how could Collier be so sure? With time and lack of living witnesses, I am afraid you will never get to the truth

The main text says:

"Started from Abbeville. The aircraft was attacked by Hurricanes, the wireless operator being wounded in the hand and the pilot broke off the flight. Shortly afterwards there was an explosion which may have been caused by AA fire, the aircraft going into a spin and the wireless operator baled out from 800ft. The pilot was killed in the crash"
