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

1943-10-20LancasterIIIJA714CF-RKelstern1747Leipzig Hit by heavy flak over Dutch coast. Crashed off Oosterend Texel Killed Age 20Runnymede Panel 173. Paradie Archive Database JA714, piloted by Pilot officer W. P. Cameron, was hit by heavy flak over the Dutch coast and crashed at Waddenzee some 3 kilometres south east of Oosterend on the island of Texel, whilst on a bombing raid to Leipzig, on 20-21 October 1943. This was the first operational loss for the newly formed squadron. All the crew were killed. The attack on Leipzig was the first serious attack on this far-flung city. Weather conditions were described as appalling, and some 16 Lancasters and their crews were lost on this raid. Ground reports on the loss of this Lancaster state that the aircraft exploded in a tremendous fireball parts of which glided down slowly. The aircraft fell and then seemed to regain control at which point it rose up and exploded (possibly its incendiary bomb load blew up). The aircraft came down on the mudflats on Wadden Sea and continued to burn for time. Aircraft returning from the raid reported still seeing it burning. Only one body was recovered, that of Albert Snook, whose body washed ashore on the Terchelling Islands.
