William's unmanned grave at Runneymede  memorial in Surrey.<br />
<br />
The final resting place of a 'lost' World War Two airmen has been discovered 75 years after his plane crashed in Holland.<br />
<br />
Flight Sergeant William Hurrell was killed when his RAF Typhoon was hit by an enemy plane as he went to the aid of besieged paratroopers fighting at Arnhem.<br />
<br />
William's name was added to the Runneymede Memorial in Surrey which is dedicated to the 20,000 Allied airmen with no known grave.<br />
<br />
Now seven decades on and the Dutch authorities are preparing to excavate the crash site where they believe William's aircraft and is body are buried.
