Update from Peter Cauwenberghs Clinge:
"As far as I know F/Sgt. W.T. Whitmore from the 65 Sqdn crashed at Clinge on the 3th of January 1944 about 15:30 local time, in a field near to the extention of the Bisschoppendreef at Clinge. (Clinge is a very small town in the region of Zeeuws-Vlaanderen, part of the province Zeeland, all in the Netherlands.)
There are several possibilities in investigating the flight records on Back to Normandy. All the flights are plotted on maps, sorted day by day, by squadron, by type aircraft, by year or month, by location and much more! Don't miss this!!!
