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

However, there is no evidence in the definitive Night Fighter/ Flak publications nor in the records of Polish Air Force losses that support this claim. Therefore the reason for the loss of the a/c is unknown.

The bodies of the Pilot, Navigator and an Air Gunner were washed up on the Lincolnshire coast, but there was no trace of the other three members of the crew . Body not recovered until early May 1942.

The aircraft was taking off on a Trooping Flight to India, but it crashed into a hillside at Whites Farm, Broadway Pound, near Merryfield, Somerset, some four and a half miles from the airfield, flying at 900 feet. The flight should not have been authorised and the Pilot, F/Lt L Mielecki, was insufficiently trained for this task. The Pilot's briefing included an instruction that, when climbing through cloud, he was not to turn until passing 1500 feet - this instruction was ignored. There were 27 fatalities.
