Facts

Sgts Marius Eriksen and Eirik Rolfson Malm went on Rhubarb in Belgium, first attacking canon emplacements, then turned their attention to a train that was attacked several times and destroyed. Sgt Malm came in too low on one strafe and made contact with a tank carriage and crashed. Sgt Eriksen considered that Malm had been hit by flak earlier during the ops. The code of W3833 was AH-E. Site was about 3 miles W of Bruges. Extracted from various Norwegian sources.
