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

WellingtonKabrit EgyptDFC Citation London Gazette 14 November 1944. The recommendation states: ‘Flying Officer Chalmers has, on this his second operational tour, completed 19 very successful sorties with this Squadron, including four attacks against Berlin, on all of which he has displayed keen determination and a steadfastness of purpose worthy of the highest praise. This Officer is a Wireless Operator of outstanding ability, whose knowledge and general airmanship have proved to be of immeasurable value to his Captain on may occasions, and Flying Officer Chalmers shares in no small measure the credit due to the crew, of which he is a member, for the success of the operations carried out by them. Undeterred by the heaviest enemy opposition, this Officer has, with exceptional coolness and skill, at all times completed his allotted task, and by his cheerful disposition coupled with a dogged determination, has been a fine example to all, considerably aiding the high morale of his crew. The consistent good work by Flying Officer Chalmers and his unfailing devotion to duty at all times merit his recommendation for an award of the Distinguished Flying Cross.’

DFM Citation London Gazette 15 May 1942. The recommendation states: ‘This airman commenced operational flying in May 1940. Before joining his present Squadron, he carried out eight raids over Germany and German occupied territory; he also took part in an attack on Turin, being a specially selected member of the aircrew. He has now completed a total of 38 sorties involving 160 flying hours. Throughout he has displayed the highest standard of efficiency which, combined with his determination and enthusiasm, have set a splendid example.’

BEM Citation London Gazette 12 June 1977. Christopher Walter Chalmers was born in Aberdeen in 1909 and was educated at the Robert Gordon College. Afterwards travelling to Australia to take up farming, he returned to the U.K. in 1930 to run his own piggery at St. Katherine’s, Fyvie, but in 1939 elected to enlist in the Royal Air Force. His operational career as a Wireless Operator began at the end of May 1940, when he was despatched on a sweep over Lyme Bay in an aircraft of No. 15 OTU Two Nickel sorties followed in August and October and at the end of the year he was posted to No. 99 (Madras Presidency) Squadron, a Wellington unit operating out of Mildenhall. Five operations were completed that December, against Turin, Mannheim, Le Havre, Ludwigshafen and Berlin. Emden followed soon into the new year. In February 1942, Chalmers was posted to 148 Sqd, a Wellington unit operating out of Kabrit, Egypt. From here, the Squadron played a vital role in supporting the operations of the 8th Army, in addition to hitting targets in Crete and Greece. For his own part, between February and October 1941, Chalmers brought up his tally of operational sorties to 38, Tripoli being visited on four occasions and the dreaded Benghazi “Mail Run” completed seven times. Gazetted for the DFM in May 1942, Chalmers enjoyed a period of rest and was commissioned in the following year. Returning to the operational scene with No. 101 Squadron, a Lancaster unit operating out of Ludford Magna, Lincolnshire, in early 1944, he completed his first sortie, against the German capital, on the night of 20-21 January. Two more trips to Berlin followed in quick succession, during the last of which his Lancaster was attacked by three enemy night fighters during its bombing run. And with the exception of perhaps half a dozen French targets in the run up to the Normandy landings, Chalmers and his crew, piloted by Squadron Leader C. B. Morton, spent the remainder of their seven month tour returning to Germany, another Berlin run, the disastrous Nuremburg raid of March 1944 and Frankfurt (twice) making up the agenda. The gallant Chalmers completed his second tour with a strike against Domleger on the night of 2-3 July 1944. Afterwards returning to the world of farming, Chalmers was awarded his BEM for services at the Institute for Research on Animal Diseases at Compton, Berkshire.
