After the crash, three bodies were moved by the current east and washed ashore on beaches at Frisian Islands Rottumeroog, Borkum and the coastline north of Groningen.

Sgt. Jindra was found 17 Sept. 1941 at the north-Groningen coast and buried in Uithuizermeeden. Pilot Officer Partyk buried Borkum, reburied post war Sage (centralisation) War Cemetery, Germany.

Sgt. Netik washed ashore at Rottumeroog and buried there 7 August 1941. He was buried with name. His wooden grave marker with ID went to dust after 4 years on this unprotected sandbank in the North Sea. Post war he was hastily exhumed and with all others found on Rottumeroog reburied in Oldebroek, which was the temporary Dutch base of this English grave recovery team (Oldebroek army base).

No evidence found of burial on Rottumeroog of a Sgt. named Ctvirtlik, Vales or Babacek. However, On Schiermonnikoog island washed ashore on 7 August 1941 an unknown Sgt. WO/AG, RAF. He is buried there (Vredenhof Cemetery) in grave 60. And, next to Netik on Rottumeroog lay an unknown Sgt. RAF, washed ashore 2 Sept. 1941. He was also moved to Oldebroek but never identified. He rests today in Oldebroek in grave 22. We believe he is Czech and one of the MIA men of this crew.
