Data derived from many sources. Corrections/Additions welcomed via Helpdesk
This database consolidates all data previously held in our Fighter Command and Bomber Command databases and that held in our Polish Honour Roll database

* 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. Our date is always the Take Off date as this 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. (Earlier readers may remember we stated our date was the Briefing Date, but it is in fact the TAKE OFF date). 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 date we change our record if necessary

Educated at Belvedere School. Joined RAF September 1927 at the age of 15 as an apprentice metal rigger. 43 Squadron RAF based at RAF Tangmere. In 1933 he converted to the role of fitter at RAF Worthy Down and in 1935 applied to become a fighter pilot. Completed training in 1936 and became an established pilot by 1939. In September 1939 Carey flew defensive patrols over eastern Scotland, where he gained his first successes. Commissioned as pilot officer in April 1940, he transferred to 3 Squadron RAF and participated in the Battle of France, where he had seven enemy aircraft shot down and two probably shot down. On 14 June he was promoted to flying officer and from 9 July to 18 August 1940 Carey flew in the Battle of Britain, accounting for a further nine enemy aircraft destroyed. Carey commanded 135 Squadron RAF in August 1941 against the Japanese invasion of Burma. In February 1942 he was promoted to wing commander and by the end of the year had shot down nine Japanese aircraft. After being sent to RAF for Air Officer Commanding (AOC) Air Fighting Training Unit 1 and promoted to group captain for Egypt as AOC at OTU 73, in July 1945 he moved to England as Group Captain Tactics at the Central Flying Establishment until the Japanese surrender. After World War II he continued his career in the RAF until 1958, when he moved to Australia to work for the Rolls Royce Aero Engine Division. He died in Chichester, aged 92.
