There were also two crashes which very little is known about.

Type: De Haviland Mosquito?

Part: Unknown

Crash date: December 1944

This includes the apparent crashing of a twin-engine aircraft near Dodewaard during the last few days of 1944. The two crew members on board both lost their lives. There is no information about where they were buried, as this happened in the front-line territory. This probably involved a De Haviland Mosquito. 

Type: Supermarine Spitfire 

Part: Unknown

Crash date: 24th April 1945 

Crash location: Dodewaard, Wely region

Commander: Unknown

Another crash involved a Supermarine Spitfire in the Wely area on 24th April 1945. But no further information is available regarding this crash.
