Data derived from many sources. Corrections/Additions welcomed via Helpdesk
This database consolidates all data previously held in our Fighter Command and Bomber Command databases and that held in our Polish Honour Roll database

* NOTE ON DATES: IMPORTANT: For consistency, the Date is given as the date the mission TOOK OFF since the precise time of a loss is not always certain. Our date is always the Take Off date as this is unambigous and fixed in the official records, but obviously in those cases where the incident occurred before midnight UK time, then the Take Off Date will be the same as the Incident Date. Of course, most Bomber Command missions flew through midnight, therefore a Luftwaffe claim against a plane - or a locally generated crash report - may record the incident as occurring on the day following our Take Off Date. Bear this in mind when cross-referencing to our Luftwaffe Victories by Name/Date Database and other Luftwaffe sources. In some cases other sources may quote the date following our date, using locally generated reports as their source. (Earlier readers may remember we stated our date was the Briefing Date, but it is in fact the TAKE OFF date). To add to the potential for confusion, remember to take into account a Luftwaffe recorded date will be in local time, 1 hour ahead of UK time. When we discover a validated Incident Date date we change our record if necessary

KilledAabenraa Cemetery Allied Mil. Plot. Row 2.1.DFC Citation: Acting Flight Lieutenant Edward Noel THOMPSON (54128), Royal Air Force, No. 77 Squadron. This officer was the pilot of an aircraft detailed for a mine-laying mission one night in March, 1944, whilst over the target area the aircraft came under heavy fire from batteries on each side, of the shore. Flight Lieutenant Thompson manoeuvred with much skill but eventually his aircraft was heavily hit. The nose of the aircraft was badly damaged and the windscreen of the pilot's cockpit was shattered. One member of the crew was killed and two others were seriously wounded. Nevertheless, Flight Lieutenant Thompson released his mines and then set course for this country. Although deprived of the assistance of his navigator,- who was too badly hurt to fulfil his duties, Flight Lieutenant Thompson flew the damaged aircraft to a home based airfield. In very trying circumstances this officer displayed skill, courage and determination worthy of the highest praise. London Gazette 7th April 1944.

Son of Peter and Grace May Thompson, of Grays, Essex.
