HC Deb 13 December 1939 vol 355 c1215W
Mr. Lyons

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he can make any further statement with reference to the enemy aircraft which crashed off the coast of Norfolk on Wednesday morning, the 6th instant?

Sir K. Wood

As announced in the Press, the wreckage of a German aircraft and the body of a German airman were discovered on the Norfolk coast early on the morning of the 6th December. The aircraft is presumed to have been engaged on minelaying operations. I am not in a position to make any further statement.
