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

He was an experienced pilot, having flown 422 hours solo (40 on Meteor) in 63 wartime ops. During the war Saward served with the RAF as a member of the RNZAF. He flew operationally with the Takoradi Defence Flight and 128 Squadron, RAF, in West Africa and later from Britain with 486 Sqn, RNZAF, until shot down and captured in September 1943. It is believed that after WW2 Flt.Sgt. Saward transferred to the RAF.

The pilot had been performing very steep turns and failed to acknowledge radio calls. It was thought that he might have been become unconscious while manoevring.

Son of Charles Arthur and Alice Rosalind (née Wakelin) Saward and husband to Patricia May (née Harper) Saward of Auckland, New Zealand.

Portrait by Eric Kennington

Crew: Wing Commander R Sawrey-Cookson, Pilot Officer W F Budd (RNZAF), Sergeant E Hainsworth, Sergeant D P Stock, Flying Officer G E Mitchell (RCAF), Sergeant R H Emery: killed; Wellington X3489, 75 Squadron RNZAF; aircraft shot down and crashed near Cologne, Germany during an operational flight, 6 April 1942.

DFC Citation: Acting Flight Lieutenant Reginald SAWREY-COOKSON (38574), No. 149 Squadron. One night in November, 1940, this officer was detailed to attack a target at Gelsenkirchen. He was unable to locate his target owing to heavy cloud but, determined to find a profitable objective, he eventually located an unlighted aerodrome on which nine large bombers were lined up on the runway. Diving to 1,500 feet he made several runs over the aerodrome and, in spite of opposition from ground defences, dropped his bombs when sure of obtaining good results. He has consistently shown the utmost determination in locating and accurately bombing his target. Flight Lieutenant Sawrey-Cookson has completed many operational flights over enemy and enemy occupied territory.

DSO Citation: This officer has participated in numerous operational missions a's captain of aircraft. His tenacity and determination to seek and destroy his allotted target have been most marked. This was particularly so one night in March, 1941, when, in an attack on the enemy battle cruisers at Brest, he made twelve runs over the target before releasing his bombs. On a later occasion, when over Kiel, he was twice forced down to almost ground level by anti-aircraft fire but, in spite of damage to his aircraft, he came back each time, eventually releasing his bombs over the target. His gallantry and devotion to duty have been outstanding.

In January 1941, Scott and E.L 'Nipper' Joyce, another New Zealander from Scott's Wigram course, were posted to 3 Sqd, which was then based at Skeabrae in the Orkney Islands, defending the nearby naval base at Scapa Flow. On 3 April 1941, 3 Sqd was transferred to Martlesham Heath near Ipswich and became part of 11 Group. On 9 April, they were joined by 71 Sqd, and both units settled down to a quiet period of convoy patrols. Both units were equipped with Hurricane Marks IIA and IIB, armed with eight and 12 .303-inch Browning machine guns, respectively, although these were being changed for the improved Mark IIC, which was armed with four 20 mm Hispano cannon. It became apparent that 3 Sqd was expected to operate both by day and by night in a wide range of roles:

'The reason for our shift south soon became obvious. Instead of waiting for the Luftwaffe to visit Britain, the hierarchy of the RAF had decided to take the air war into the enemy's domain. Not only were we expected to carry out attacks on enemy shipping and targets in Belgium and France, we were also expected to do night fighter patrols over London – a dual role that was versatile but very exhausting. We could cover most operations from Martlesham Heath, but fighter nights over London had to be carried out from Debden on account of its runways and better night-flying facilities. Thus we could be attacking shipping in the morning (Roadsteads), escorting Blenheim or Stirling bombers over France in the afternoon (Circuses) and flying defensive patrols over London on the same night.' — Desmond J. Scott, 'One More Hour'

Scott made his first claims on 7 August 1941, a pair of Bf-109s damaged over Le Touquet. During night intruder operations over the Netherlands, Scott was to claim several kills during the first half of 1942, totalling 3.5 claimed destroyed, 3 probables and 3 damaged. He was promoted flight sergeant in May 1942 before being commissioned in July, becoming a flight commander in August. In September, he received the Distinguished Flying Cross and Bar, was promoted to squadron leader, and rested from operations, serving with HQ Fighter Command in a staff position.

In April 1943, he converted to the Hawker Typhoon and joined 198 Sqd as a squadron leader, before moving to command 486 Sqd (NZ), flying offensive fighter-bomber operations over Europe. In the next four months, he claimed another 2 destroyed and 2 shared destroyed. In August 1943, he received the Distinguished Service Order and became Wing Leader, RAF Tangmere. In November 1943, he was rested and posted as Commanding Officer, RAF Hawkinge. In March 1944, he commanded the newly formed 123 Wing, flying Typhoons, taking the unit to Europe during mid-1944, and becoming the youngest group captain in the RNZAF. He finished his tour in February 1945. He was appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire for rescuing a pilot from a burning crashed aircraft. Scott's claims for the war were 5 (and 3 shared) aircraft destroyed, 4 (and 2 shared) 'probables', 5 (and 1 shared) damaged
