The Kh-Game is more than just a game.
This is a translation of the text I put yesterday.
On Saturday November 13, 1943, during a Rhubarb mission over Cambrai and Saint Quentin.
In the course the strafing on the objective, F/O Rowe is separated from his leader because of fog. He drifts towards Oise where, it seems, he is hit after having strafed the airbase of Creil or Beauvais. His plane crashed around 17:00 at St-Felix close to Hondainville.
The plane crashed at la Bosse des Chênes near route D89
