    Default Plane crash sites and bombing reports

    Hi All
    I hope you are all ok , a new project for me and our village , I have asked local residents for their stories etc about the village during WW2 , many surprises all ready .

    A common thread has been , seeing 'downed' aircraft in and around the village , as of yet we can not verify any of this , can the forum point me in the right direction , surely there was records kept of crashes etc , they appear to be always German aircraft.

    Our village of Newington next sittingbourne , is in North kent .

    thanks

    Dean

    Great idea!

    One place to start might be the local papers?

    Default Aircrash site

    Hi Dean

    I think you might find this site very useful: https://aircrashsites.co.uk/category/air-crash-sites/. Use the drop-down menu and you will find many categories. Let us know if you find anything relevant to your researches.

    Off to roost now (in a well shielded branch!).

    Have a look for CWGC graves in the area. Even though people died in the UK, they were sometimes buried local to their death rather than a graveyard close to their family.
