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

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."

Caucade Cemetery, Nice
B-26 crew of French squadron "Franche-Comté" took off on August 4, 1944 from Villecidro (Sardinia) to bombard the Charles Albert bridge (Var plain). The group of 6 Marauders enters a cloud mass near the objective. During the crossing of the cloud mass the B-26s slowed down and the Marauder 42-107726 which is the last is forced to slow down too much not to overtake the others, which causes it to stall and go into a spin. The plane crashed with its bombs on the crest of Plagels above the village of Mollière. No survivors. They are buried in the Caucade cemetery in Nice (06).

Shortly after entering the Var valley, in order to bomb the Charles Albert bridge and the railway bridge of the 'Train des pignes' near the town of Plan-du-Var, Marauder #42-107726 crashes near Valdeblore. The 7 occupants, Captain Jean-Marie Cartier, pilot, Warrant Officer Albert Casanova, co-pilot, Lieutenant Robert William, navigator, Lieutenant Jacques Marini, bombardier, Chief Warrant Officer André Bertrand, mechanic, Staff Sergeants Pierre Ferrier, radio operator, and Antonin Donato, gunner, are killed in the crash.
