Good morning Alain

Are you really sure with the date ?. There is a Mustang listed " 9:30 hrs, 4 km N of Vlamertinge" in KU 2375 on June 28th, 1944.

Best wishes !

A link to MACR 8673 for the loss of Adolf Bielok in P-51 43-6868 on June 28 near St Omer is below. However a page from the German J-1527 report is included in the MACR and it gives the location of the crash as Vlamertinghe which is near Ypres.

According to the "Kenosha Evening News" of June 28, 1949 he was to be buried on July 1, 1949 in St George Cemetery, Kenosha WI. Find-a-grave shows his father, Lukas, is also buried there.

Exclamation Re: 1st Lt Bielok Adolf KIA 352FG/487FS KIA 06/29/1944

Hello ,

Thank you both for your help.So the date must have been 06/28/1944.Vlamertine and Ypres is not so far away from the French-Belgian border so he must have been buried in Wevelgem who is also in the neightbourhood.

Regards

See image 16 of 43 on this link (J-1527):

or image 15 of 285 on this link (AV-1096/44):

He was buried in grave 475, Community Cemetery of Wevelghem on June 29th.

Interesting is the next man listed on the AV report, "Hampshire", serial number 114329, who was buried the same day in grave 476.

These next two casualties (graves 476 and 477) are from this loss:

Herbert Robin Hampshire and Alan Melrose (141 sq) are still there:
