During a bombing run in the Air War over Denmark, on the return flight Chalmers's Lancaster bomber was attacked by a German night fighter and his plane crashed at Dejbjerg. Reports were that the plane exploded in the air and crashed in the fields below. A search for the crew remains was first conducted by the Wehrmacht and then a search was organized under the command of Captain Kisbye of C.B.U. in Herning and the remains collected were placed in four coffins and taken to the Dejbjerg cemetery where members of the resistance movement had dug a grave. On September 14, 1944 the crew were laid to rest.
