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

ZN-H was hit over the target which resulted in it losing considerable altitude. Flying at about 100 feet over Amiens the bomber was raked with ground machine gun fire and was set on fire. With no height for a bale out, Brodrick crash landed at Sauvillers-Mongival, SE of Amiens in France, at 0330 hours. Lt(A) G Muttrie RNVR was aboard as one of the observers from the Fleet Air Arm seconded to bomber command squadrons for their knowledge of ship recognition, they flew as Bomb Aimers not navigators. Muttrie, attached from HMS Daedalus, had flown with Guy Gibson on the sortie that took the broadcaster Richard Dimbleby over Berlin on 16th/17th January 1943. F/Lt.

Investigating officers from the RCAF visited the village of Steinberg 40 miles NW of Berlin. They were told by the villagers that a large British aircraft had crashed four to five hundred yards west of the villa and that the crew had been buried in a communal grave in the local cemetery. It was believed that the aircraft had been shot by night fighters. The grave was exhumed but unhappily Sgt. Taylor the Flight Engineer and the Bomb Aimer Fg.Off. Daynes of the crew were the only ones who could be individually identified. (Extract from letter to Mrs Presland by Wg.Cdr. Gunn RCAF Causalities Officer dated 23 March 1950)

Paradie Archive Database Lancaster ED366, piloted by Sergeant K. Hurst, was shot down near Obermeiser, south east of Warberg, whilst on a bombing raid to Kassel, on 22-23 October 1943. All the crew were killed except for the pilot, Hurst, who was taken Prisoner of War. Bomber Command War Diaries by Martin Middlebrook states: ‘Although the German decoy may have drawn off part of the bomber force the main raid was exceptionally accurate and concentrated. The result was the most devastating attack on a German city since the firestorm raid on Hamburg in July and the results at Kassal would not be exceeded again until well into 1944. The fires were so concentrated that there was a firestorm though not as extensive as the Hamburg one.’
