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

Son of Anton and Zita Bonokoski, of Torquay, Saskatchewan, Canada

Statements from Flt Lt Davis and Fg Off Maher. They state that their aircraft was shot down by enemy anti-aircraft fire, approximately ten miles NW of Rostock in the early morning of 29 Jan 1944. They had baled out of the aircraft and have no definite information regarding your son. From their statements it appears that Sgt Bothwell the rear gunner was unconscious and your son went back to pull him out of the turret. However before he was able to rescue him that section of the aircraft was struck by a heavy Flak shell and the tail was blown off. They believe that your son lost his life at that time. (Extract of letter to Mr Bonokoski (Father) from RCAF Causalities Officer dated 24 July 1944)
