LeO 451 Loss

On May 5, 1940 a LeO 451 No 37 from II/GB 12 was lost to flak while attacking German motorized columns. Does anybody have the names of the crew?

Thanks in advance

Jan

Re: LeO 451 Loss

Jan,

In Peter Cornwell's book no record of a loss on 5 May 1940, but on 20 May 1940 for LeO 451 nr. 37.
Shot down by Bf-109s of 3./JG2 and crashed SW of Guise.
Crew: Adjt. A. Michelet, Sgt Servais, Sgt. G. Roques and Adjt. P. Auge, all killed.

Regards,

Leendert
