Lancaster ND952 of RAF 626 Squadron was shot down on the 1st of July 1944 during an air raid on railway yards near Vierzon, France, just South of Orleans. Of the 118 participating Lancasters, eleven were lost.

Only three of the Lancasters crew managed to get out of the plane. The four men buried at Theillay Communal Cemetery presumably died in the crash.
