Personal notes

While approaching Arnhem his Stirling LJ-881 was badly hit by FLAK but he flew on to the dropping zone. Containers and panniers had just been released when Messerschmitts attacked, setting the bomber on fire. As it began to integrate in the air Bebarfald gave the order to bail out but, in spite of his efforts at the controls, there was only time for two of his crew to escape before the machine crashed near the Veldstraat.
