Data derived from many sources. Corrections/Additions welcomed via Helpdesk

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. Take Off date 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. 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 we change our record if necessary

1942-10-01HalifaxIIW7776NF-BTempsford1800SOEThis a/c and its crew was briefed to locate Drop Zone RAK 206, which was 1km to the south of Siedlce, Poland; this was also an operation flight known as "Operation Chisel". The a/c also carried some bombs and incendiaries to top up it's maximum allowed weight. All appears to have gone well outbound. The crew took a slightly longer time than planned to find this drop zone, it was located and the agents and equipment were dropped. The bombs were released over railway targets in the area, the a/c then made for home. During the return flight the a/c must have strayed of course slightly and by the time they reached the Yorkshire Coast it was about out of fuel having crossed the coast too far north than was intended. The lack of fuel prevented the crew from locating an airfield and in fact the a/c was so low on fuel that the engines stopped as the pilot began to carry out the forced-landing in a field over-looking the North Sea near Goldsborough, to the north of Whitby at 0730hrs. The a/c had been in the air for almost thirteen and a half hours. The landing was not 100% successful, it ended up in two pieces but the airmen were all safe with no injuries reported.
