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

Shot up by a Bf 109 and Fw 190 (the Fw probably piloted by Ofw Kurt Welter of 5/JG 302, but this is impossible to confirm). The crew was interned at Fr?mby, later moved to Korsn?s, and returned to Britain in September 1944. The entire crew less Butler (who was replaced by Biddlecombe for reasons yet unknown) was shot down and killed aboard Lancaster RF182 shortly before the end of the war.

1944-06-09HalifaxIIIMZ532ZA:ZMelbourne00:21LavalCrashed at St-Berthevin {Mayenne}Killed Age 24Laval (Valfleury) Communal Cemetery, E. Sub-Sec. D. Row 1. Grave 42937.
During the night of June 9 to 10, 1944, fourteen airmen of the Royal Air Force died on mission in Entrammes and Saint-Berthevin. Two stelae will be erected in honor of these allied fighters.

The story translated from French (laval.maville.com). June 1944. Entrammes aerodrome was at the heart of the fighting from the first days of the D-Day landings. On the night of the 9th to the 10th, 10 Squadron of the Royal Air Force Bomber Command, whose motto is Rem Acu Tangere ("I hit the target") is assigned to carry out a mission. Having left Melbourne in Yorkshire, England, he had to bomb Laval aerodrome. Two German squadrons of Focke-Wulf Fw 190 fighter bombers are stationed there.
It's 00:15 hrs “It's still a full moon. It offers excellent visibility on the objective, ”specifies Honorary Battalion Commander Jean-Louis Cholet, President of the Laval Committee for French Remembrance. A wave of 25 bombers is about to release their bombs. Arriving on a NW axis, even before the attack, one of the aircraft fell victim to German flak. MZ532, a four-engine Handley Page Halifax III, was hit at Saint-Berthevin (on the site of the current La Girandière residence) by a flak post. The bomber drops its bombs near the wood of L'Huisserie (near the current agricultural school) before crashing in flames at Le Pont-Alain, in Saint-Berthevin.

It is 00:21 hrs. On board seven men: an Australian, the pilot, and six Britons are killed. “They didn't have time to jump. They crashed in 20 to 30 seconds. The bodies of the navigator Henderson and the machine-gunner Wicks, horribly mutilated, were buried in the same coffin, continues Jean-Luc Peslier, president of the Mayenne friendly of the Air Force. Since the target is not large, we can assume that the attack took place at medium altitude. This could explain why the crew could not jump before the crash.

"The other 24 bombers continued their mission. They hit the airfield which becomes a building site. In the attack, a second Halifax, MZ 684, was hit by the German defence. It is 00:30 hrs. “It descends at the southern exit of the village of Entrammes in a field behind the farm Les Poiriers. The crew, five British and two Canadians, are wiped out. “Their bodies were collected by local farmers under duress from the Germans who did not want to disperse. Only the bodies of the pilot and the mechanic were identifiable. The fourteen airmen of the Royal Air Force have since rested in the Vaufleury cemetery.
