2nd Lt Lincoln D. Bundy was shot down over Crulai on June 10th 1944. He had just finished strafing a German truck convoy near Crulai, Normandy, France when he was shot down and went MIA. For half a century, it was assumed he had been killed on that day. On June 11th, 1945, Lt. Bundy was declared dead and awarded a Purple Heart. He evaded capture until July 7th 1944, falling in with the SAS men of Operation Bulbasket, when he was executed in the woods nearby after the latter’s demise along with 30 SAS men. They were taken into the woods near to St Sauvant, forced to dig their own graves then executed by a German firing squad at dawn under the command of SS Major Josef Kieffer. Their bodies were then buried in a mass grave. His death date is June 10, 1944 on his headstone. He also has cenotaphs located in Rom Communal Cemetery, France and in Cambridge American Cemetery and Memorial, England.
