Facts

The crew HENRI - HUYNEN fails to return from a mission over Germany. The Mosquito (MM792) was victim of the Flak in the Cologne area and crashed near Suchteln (Germany). The two casualties will be buried near the wreck of their plane. The bodies were subsequently repatriated to Belgium, in the 1950s, according to the archives of the town of Viersen and a local website. Seems Henri Huynen (and possibly pilot Henri) was then buried in Brussels, at the Evere cemetery.
