In the German cemetery at Thiaucourt there are some French graves. I think at least one of them is of a pilot shot down in 1917. I'm speaking from memory, so will have to check when I'm there next (goodness knows when).
If anyone goes there, to find the graves, go through the entrance and bear left. The ground slopes down and there are a lot of sandstone German crosses. One of them is the pilot (in a line leading down the slope, and facing a an area which is an 1870 cemetery. The strange big concrete block over a mass grave right down at the bottom of the cemetery is a World War Two memorial to Germans who died in a POW camp in the next field.
Do you mind if a take a copy of that photo? It will all ad to something to say when I'm there.
In fact, I think there is another photo of that crash lurking on the internet somewhere, but there may have been several.
I absolutely would not mind one bit. I would love to be able to identify the plane and pilot and if that would help than I'm all for it!
