On this day 75 years ago, Lancaster LQP of 405 Pathfinder squadron was shot down over Denmark, while returning from a bombing mission over Stettin.

Of the crew of seven, six escaped the aircraft.  Two were arrested, while the other four managed to escape with the help of the Danish underground.  Philip Musgrave lost his life.  He is interred at the Svino churchyard in Denmark.
