Information concerning loss of Obergefreiter Georg Merl - killed 23.05.42

Hi,

Can anyone provide information on the loss of Obergefreiter Georg Merl who was a member of a bomber crew and was killed over the East on 23rd May 1942?

He was an experienced flier with the EK I and Flight Battle Badge.

Thanks

Rick
