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 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.’

Stefan Siverud on Helpdesk reports plane crash landed about 20 km NW from Swedish base Kalmar outside the village Nickebo. 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.
