174035 F/O John Robert Brodby of 16 Squadron crashed in Hees, Nijmegen on 20 September 1944 in his PR Mk.XI Spitfire PL896 whilst on a photo-reconnaissance mission out of RAF Northolt in support of Operation Market Garden. Nobody seems to know where. However, he has a grave. What happened? There's an eyewitness report (the date has later been corrected elsewhere) from Nicolaas Lambrechtsen of Hees that Brodby's plane almost crashed into his house… http://www.netherlandsfoundation.org.nz/our-stories/read-our-stories/nicolaas-lambrechtsen/ There's a new post on my blog about the work of 16 Squadron and about Jimmy Taylor, who knew John Brodby… http://hewasahero.wordpress.com/ Please say what needs adding or changing. Thanks!
