The aircraft belonged to RCAF (RAF) 431 Sqn. Bomber Command and was coded SE-J.
T/o 22:13 Croft. OP: Hamburg.
LH845 is believed to have crashed in the Baltic Sea due to Air Gnr. P/O Kenneth
Roland Miller resting in Aabenraa cemetery.
It is not known where he was found and it is not known when he was laid to rest
since the Germans burned most of the register from the cemetery just before the
capitulation in May 1945.

William E. McDonald, Air Bomber P/O Richard J. Stone RAF, Wop/Air Gnr. P/O John
E. Gardner and Air Gnr. P/O Robert J. Miller have no known graves and are
commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial.
