stanford-le-hope RAF gravestone perhaps : 102 Squadron
Died on 04 December 1943 Age 22
BERLIN 1939-1945 WAR CEMETERY, 8. Z. 9.
From various sources I know that 102 Sqn were operating the Halifax at this time and that the date of death coincides with a raid to Leipzig (3/4 December 1943) in which 15 Halifaxes were lost. Chris Goss wrote a history of 102 Squadron called : It’s Suicide but It’s Fun, The Story of 102 (Ceylon) Squadron 1917-1956…28103425&sr=8-2

The rear of the book contains an appendix of losses where we find this information:
3 Dec 1943 Halifax JD303 DY-S Leipzig Crashed at Luederitz, Germany
FO ELJ Key Pilot 102 Squadron
Halifax II JD303 DY-S
Op. Leipzig

Took off from Pocklington at 0017 hrs. Crashed at Luderitz, 9 km north west of Tangerhutte. Those who died were buried on 5 December at Luderitz. Their graves are now in Berlin 1939-1945 War Cemetery.
