Hi Eric,

Was the Bordfunker named Gefr Erich Seifert, from 1/KG2, U5+HH, lost 21/22.08.44, he is listed as missing in Ulf Balke's book?
He is also listed as missing in the area that you give on the VDK's Gräbersuche!
Regards
Joe.

Hi Eric,

Balke's book gives, 30km south of Elbeuf, that would be to the west of Evreux, around the Ferneres-Haut-Clocher to Cauge area.
