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

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.

Regained the south coast, but was abandoned circa 02:50 near Caterham, Surrey, crashing into the front garden of a house in Ridgemount Avenue, Coulston. A blazing fuel tank was thrown into the roof of a dwelling in Woodlands Grove, killing 18 month old Alan Roote and injuring his parents who were admitted to Purley Hospital.Survived DFC awarded whilst with 109 Sqn, gazetted 7th July 1944. Citation reads "Flight Lieutenant Arthur Charles CARTER (61006), R.A.F.V.R., 109 Sqn. Flying Officer Ernest Walter GARRETT (Can/J. 16299), R.C.A.F., 109 Sqn. These officers were pilot and navigator respectively of an aircraft detailed to attack Leverkusen one night in June, 1944. When nearing'the target the aircraft was hit by anti-aircraft fire which damaged the port tail plane. Just afterwards both the port engines were affected when ano'ther shell burst underneath' the aircraft. Nevertheless, Flight Lieutenant Carter maintained a steady run and the target was successfully attacked. Almost immediately the aircraft was again hit. The elevator and aileron controls were severed. A measure of control was lost but' Flight Lieutenant Carter succeeded in bringing the bomber level and a course was set for home. Soon after leaving the target one of the damaged engines, caught fire and had to be. put out of action. The aircraft gradually lost height but Flight Lieutenant Carter held resolutely to.his course and finally reached an airfield. This officer dispayed skill, gallantry and devotion to duty of a high order. Flying Officer Garrett also proved himself to be a valiant and devoted member of aircraft crew.' In the face of most harassing circumstances he navigated his aircraft with unerring skill and also rendered other assistance >to his pilot in his endeavours to reach this country."
