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

Battle of Britain

The Canadian-born Spitfire pilot took part in missions involving dive-bombing rocket sites in northern France and targeting enemy ships in the English Channel. He also backed advancing allied troops in August 1944 which led the German army's full retreat and the end of the war the following year. The great-grandfather from Combe Down, Somerset, passed away June 2016 just a few weeks after his wife of 75 years, Evelyn. Mr Beake grew up near Bristol before his service call up at the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939. He became an instructor in 1944 and flew his own Hawker Tempest aircraft with his initials PH-B on the side, before he was released from the RAF on January 21 1946. Mr Beake went on to work for Unilever in the milling business where he was based in Avonmouth and London before moving to Exeter. He spent his retired years with his wife in Ottery St Mary, Devon, before moving to Bath in 2008. Mr Beake was awarded the Legion D'Honneur for his services - France's highest level military medal - last year.
