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

1944-05-27LancasterIIIJA712BQ:HNorth Killingholme23:58AachenClaim by Oblt Fredrich Thorl Stab I/NJG4 - Brussels area (NJ)-Haecht (NK 15): 3,200m at 02:24. Crashed Rebecq-Rognon (Brabant) 25km South Wesr of Brussels. (Nachtjagd Combat Archive (12 May 1944 - 23 July 1944) Part 3 - Theo Boiten)KilledBrussels Town Cemetery Plot X Row 19 Grave 16Only two of the seven crew members survived. The 1st, Eli Molnar, was able to parachute and be hidden by the resistance. The second, David Yardley, was ejected on impact with the ground. Wounded, he was transported by villagers - on the tail of the plane - to be treated at the hospices. Found by the Germans, he will be taken prisoner of war. The Germans had initially found only two bodies in the aircraft cabin. Thinking therefore that a good part of the crew had been hidden, the Germans organised a raid in retaliation by arresting 22 Rebecquois. Deported to the Sachsenhausen camp, three never returned: Giovanni and Giuseppe Vechiatto as well as Louis Deneyer. (Hanger Flying)

1943-12-03HudsonlllAFH277NGambut 3Convoy Escort Operation MajorCrashed just after take-off in wet and misty conditions, the aircraft overturning - cause uncertain.Seriously injured459 Squadron was formed at Burg-el-Arab on 10 February 1942 as a maritime patrol squadron. It joined 201 Group of the Royal Air Force's Middle East Command and commenced operations off the Egyptian coast on 14 February. Initially, the squadron was equipped with two Lockheed Hudson aircraft and four Bristol Blenheims borrowed from 203 Squadron RAF but by May was fully equipped with Hudsons. The Mediterranean Sea was the focus of the squadron's operations throughout 1942 and it operated from several airfields in Egypt and Libya. Until the Allied victory at El Alamein in October, the squadron's main role was to interdict German watercraft running supplies between Tobruk and Mersa Matruh - the closest landing point to their defensive position. Once the German land forces began to retreat following their defeat at El Alamein, 459 Squadron roamed wider escorting Allied shipping, and seeking out and attacking enemy shipping across the eastern Mediterranean as far north as the Greek islands. During 1942, detachments from 459 Squadron also conducted anti-submarine patrols over the Red Sea from Khormaksar in Aden (current day Yemen), and around Cyprus from St Jean in Palestine. In April 1944 the squadron relocated to Palestine and, operating from a succession of airfields (Ramat David, April - May 1944; St Jean, May - August 1944; Berka, August 1944 - February 1945) continued anti-shipping patrols and bombing attacks around the Greek islands. In February 1945, 459 Squadron proceeded to Egypt and sailed for the United Kingdom, for retraining on Wellingtons prior to joining Coastal Command. 459 Squadron was disbanded at Chivenor in Devon on 10 April 1945.
