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

Fifteen aircraft were detailed for Bochum. Good Oboe skymarking led to heavy bombing in the town centre. Fourteen Lancasters and 10 Halifaxes were lost from the raid. Lancaster came down on farmland belonging to Mr J. Duteweert near Marienheem in Holland. The pilot’s body and that of his 19 year old mid upper gunner, Sgt Edward Pearson were never found. The rest of the crew are buried in Raalte Cemetery.
