Pilot Officer John Donald Range Cromarty, whose Lancaster Bomber was shot down in 1944 over Berlin, had been buried as an "unknown soldier".

Now the Ministry of Defence has confirmed his identity.

His grave in Berlin will be rededicated on 27 April, along with two crewmates and three from a Halifax bomber.
