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

Paradie Archive DatabaseFlt Sgt Warren awarded DFM whilst with 15 Sqn. London Gazette 12th January 1943. Citation: "Can/R 83335 Flight Sergeant William Desbro MACMONAGLE, Royal Canadian Air Force, No 15 Squadron Can/R 114511 Flight Sergeant Earle Freeman WARREN, Royal Canadian Air Force, No 15 Squadron. In December, 1942, Flight Sergeants MacMonagle and Warren were captain and mid upper gunner respectively of an aircraft detailed to attack a target in Germany When approaching the target, their aircraft was intercepted and severely damaged by fire from two Messerschmitt 110's. Flight Sergeant Warren although seriously wounded shot one of the fighters down in flames By skilful evasive tactics the remaining attacker was eluded and the target successfully bombed. On the return flight another Messerschmitt now attacked and further damage was inflicted on the bomber The attack was again beaten off and Flight Sergeant MacMonagle flew the disabled aircraft safely back to base. Throughout this hazardous operation these airmen displayed great coolness and courage".

Fg Off. Warren initially buried in Le Fidelaire Communal Cemetery. Reinterred 27th July 1945.
