Of special Interest is the crests personal insignia of 'prancing bull' painted on the port side just ahead of the aircraft's letter code. The alrcraft's Individual white letter 'B' was repeated in black on lower surface of the wing's, outboard of the crosses. This He 111H was shot down by RAF fighters during a Luftwaffe air raid on the Bristol Aircraft Company's plant at Filton on , and crashed at Westhill Farm, Studland near Swanage in Dorset. Of the crew of five, four were captured, including the pilot Fw. Fritz J�rgens and navigator Hptm. Karl Küthke. The flight engineer, Uffz Josef Altrichter, was severely injured and succumbed to his wounds.

I have seven photographs (three of which are close ups) of this aircraft on the ground at Studland. I was two years old and living with my parents at Westcliffe Bungalow at the time. My father was in the RAF and stationed there.
Are these or copies of them of interest?
Alan Williams.
Hope this helps.
Neville Rourke.

Hi Alan
Thanks for replying.
I be delighted to to have any additional photo's of any aircraft particularly any WWII stuff my dad was also in the RAF.
But he never had a camera how sad but camera's where rare back then.
Matthew

Here are the three close ups. It was probably dad's camera because there arte a lot of family photographs in the garden at Swanage at the time. There were four of them billeted together during the battle of britain. Father went to India to man the radio station at Mauripur, Karachi after wards.
Nice to talk to you,
Alan

RAF Corporal Harry King (RAF Military Police) was stationed at Worth Matravers Sept 1940 01-02

My family believe that this rear view photo of an RAF man racing to the site of the Heinkel downed at Studland is of my late father. RAF Corporal Harry King (RAF Military Police) was stationed at the time at Worth Matravers and billeted in Swanage - where fortuitously he met my mother. The reason for our belief is that,apart from my 91 yrs old mother actually recognising his figure in the photo,he was known to have been first at the scene,rescuing crew, taking prisoners & securing the crash site. Presumably there are contemporary records still existing to support these facts. Also,he had special permission to wear the peaked cap, rather than the usual forage cap worn by his rank - supposedly for medical reasons (though I suspect vanity!). One of the German crew (the pilot,I think) returned several times to Swanage in the 1970's contacting our relatives, as he sought my father in order to thank him for saving his life.Unfortunately we no longer lived there. Ironically, the target site of this raid on Filton, Bristol in 1940 was where forty years later my two sons served their engineering apprenticeships at Rolls Royce.

Nick inherited from Dad a series of photos taken from the open door of a Dakota(?) of a parachutist whose rigging became entangled on the tail-plane and was stranded there whilst the plane encircled the airfield, unable to land without killing him. The crew saved him by swinging a heavy kitbag, like a pendulum, to the terrified guy until he managed to grasp it with his legs to be hauled back aboard.Dad told me that his hair turned white virtually overnight (though this may well be apocryphal!)

We have other photos of downed German aircraft, if you are interested. Kind Regards,
Susan Burton (nee King)

On the return leg of the sortie, this bomber was intercepted at 4:55pm over Brighton at 2,500 ft by three Spitfires MK1�s. These British fighters, which were being flown by 602 Squadron, City of Glasgow, Blue Section, were based at RAF Westhampnett near Chichester. Apparently,the Heinkel turned and flew in a westerly direction along the coast for approximately ten miles towards Worthing, probably trying to out manoeuvre the Spitfires, and trying to avoid the machine gun fire.
