    Firstly, thank you for providing some information on my Grandad, William T Crossley, who was on board Dakota KG370. I visited the cemetery yesterday and it was incredibly emotional. I also visited the crash site but was unable to distinguish the exact location. I was a little disappointed his name was not in the register at the cemetery, despite the suggestion he is believed GK be in grave 22.c.20. I intend to visit again in an effort to find out more about the crash site and those on board. I would be very grateful for any further information you could provide. I would also be grateful if it were possible for his name to be included in the register. My email address is mkc@hotmail.co.uk if either of these are possible. Thank you very much, Mark Crossley

    A nice and good response from the CWGC after a mail from me last November:
    Today I went to visit the above cemetery, and photographed the following grave, however I cannot trace this grave in the CWGC records, the grave on Plot 69, Row C, Collective Grave 14, I can find in your records and that holds an early date of 1 and 16 June 1943, see attached, would there be a mix up that there are two graves with the same date and the other might be an empty grave?

    Dear Mr. Reinders

    First and foremost, I would like to apologize for this late reply, but it has taken a long time to investigate this matter.

    After an on-the-spot inspection and further research in our archive, we were able to establish that in 1973 the gravestone for 'Sgt C Green' and 'An Airman of the 1939-1945 War' was erected in the wrong place. This tombstone had to replace those of the 2 unknown Sgts, which are to the right of the headstone for Flt / Lt Eldrdige and F / O Wahl. This will now be corrected and we will have this done by our people. I do not know exactly when this will happen but this will be scheduled during a next working visit to the Netherlands.

    Thanks for letting us know.
