Blenheim IV V5852 crashed in the North Sea on 15/7-1941.

The aircraft belonged to RAF 1403 Meteorological Flight.
T/O 05:15 Bircham Newton. OP: Met flight.

The aircraft must have crashed in the North Sea since the body of Pilot Sgt. Ronald F. Culley was found drifted ashore near Siltoft on 19/9. He was laid to rest in Tønder cemetery on 21/9 1941 a German Field priest officiating at the graveside ceremony.

Observer Sgt Frank Elliot and W/Op-Air Gnr. Sgt Leslie H. Anderson have no known graves and are commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial.
