Response to Heinkel 111H-3 4/KG26
Should have checked aircraft number before opening trap. F6+PK was the Heinkel looking for Hood when spotted and attacked by 3 spitfires from 41 Sqdn. 17th October 1939. Ditched in sea 2 crew members Hochstuhl & Lange washed ashore in dinghy near Whitby 2 days later. Mistake rectified.
