A friend at the local said the common consensus is that his plane was struck by falling munitions from our OWN bombers as they returned across the Channel, apparently they had to drop any bombs that had not been released during missions into the English Channel, and seeing as they would have been at a higher altitude than Miller's aircraft, this is very likely what happened..

I myself had never heard of this theory before but I just wondered if anyone else had come across it??

Yes Adam,

I'd not only heard the theory, but there is a classic (albeit very unfair) dig at the RAF linked to the theory.

They didn't excatly take out the major targets at Dunkirk, they only just rendered the airfield at Port Stanley unusable but they did get Glenn Miller !!!

Cruel I know because they did a hell of a lot to save this nation during The Battle Of Britain and they completely grounded the Iraqi Air Force during the first Gulf Conflict to name but two of their many achievements - so it is somewhat apologetically that I cited the above dig.

☺ ☺ ☺

Some of the musicians who were in the various bands after the war said that as they had to play the same tunes ,same solo's ect, as per the recordings, they wished in the end that Glenn Miller had survived and the music had been destroyed.
