The reason for this paper is twofold: when writing the book ` Apeldoorn ' 40 - ' 45 the story behind the Apeldoorn’s war monuments' it appeared that on the monument at 's Heerenloo Midden-Nederland (formerly Groot Schuylenburg) the name of sergeant Zercher had been misspelled: Zurcher instead of Zercher. This mistake has been corrected. Moreover the story about Sergeant Robert W. Zercher and the crew he belonged to was unknown. In the ‘official’ source we consulted we found no more information than: `In spite of many investigations in America the names of these aviators could not be found’. Meanwhile further information has become available – especially internet has proven to be an invaluable asset - and that’s the reason why the story could be reconstructed.
