Do 217 J crashlanding July 1943

Have some troubles with details of Do 217 J crashlanding at Orel on 16-Jul-1943. One of the crew members seems to be BF Heimerdinger who died the same day as a result of his wounds.

Could anyone confirm the crew names of this Do 217?

regards,
Pawel

Re: Do 217 J crashlanding July 1943

Actually the tip came from our dear RT, from whom I've got a bit blurry copy of hadwritten NVM for Fw. Heimerdinger. NVM does not give any a/c details, only that Heimerdinger suffered leg wounds in crashlanding on 16-Jul-1943 at Orel/West and died same day after leg amputation.

regards,
Pawel
