Normal World War I & World War II
theworldwars Two RAF pilots are buried with full military honors by German soldiers occupying the Channel Islands on June 6, 1943.
__________
The Luftwaffe granted a burial with full military honors for RAF pilots Sgt. Butin and Sgt. Holden who were both shot down over Jersey, Channel Islands. The Luftwaffe displayed much more chivalry than the Wehrmacht and above all the SS.
_
Sgt. Denis Charles Butin took off on an operation to Frankfurt from RAF Burn in Yorkshire, England at 23:15 hours in the summer of 1943 (specific date is unknown). Sgt. Butin then ditched roughly three miles south west of the island of Jersey after he was responding to an assistance call made by Sgt. Odling. The body of Butin's observer, Sgt. Holden washed up on the shore in St. Queens Bay in Jersey on June 3, 1943.
_
On June 5th, the bodies of Sgts. Butin and Holden lay in a hospital chapel as hundreds of civilians gathered around the coffins to pay their last respects prior to the funeral service on June 6th.
_
The next day on the 6th, both caskets were draped with the Union Jack before being taken to the cemetery. Hundreds of people lined the route but the Luftwaffe prevented any from entering the cemetery.
