Crash Site & Remains Hudson Transport Aircraft

This Hudson transporter of the RAF crashed at this place on the 21st of March, 1945. In the accident all 3 Belgian and 3 British crewmembers lost their lives.

A few years ago the wings, with propellors, lies left en right from the graves (picture 4). Now the remains are behind fences.

The memorial and remains are not easy to find, but near the Maulusmühle the location is pointed out by road signs.

The six crewmembers are buried here. Hotton War Cemetery contains three special memorials, a bit separated from the other graves, to commemorate the British crewmembers.
