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

Eric was a tail gunner in a Lancaster bomber during the second world war and was shot down over Germany on his 14th mission. He survived the crash and spent the rest of the year as a Prisoner of War (POW Stalag Luft 7) before escaping and making his way back to allied lines. In September 2010 Eric returned to Germany to trace his wartime roots. It was a once in a lifetime trip that included meeting people who had seen his plane crash in flames, drinking on the site of the pub he had drunk in at gunpoint and visiting where he had stood with Marshall Zhukov as an honour guard.

Extract from an interview with Eric Evans: Well, we flew in to a mile squared of predicted flak. A mile square of predicted, imagine what that was like. We had to fly though that to get to the target. It was impossible, but we got through. We cut ours out. We cut all ours out, from the top to the bottom so there was better sight. "So, were you briefed about this particular flak hazard at Nuremburg, did you know about it beforehand." No. They told us very little about this kind of thing. They didn’t tell us about the upward firing guns. Schräge Musik. Never told us. There was a plane shot down in 1943 with complete, seventy-degree guns fitted, they didn’t tell us about it. Well, there were maps all over the wall. Loads of maps, you knew where you were going, and you just prepared for wherever it was [laughs]. Everybody moaned. "So, were there particular trips that everybody moaned about, particular targets that were notorious?" All the Ruhr targets. My three COs were killed on the one I was shot down on. Three COs killed there. Most heavily defended target in Germany. " Gosh. And why was that? What was significant about —" Dortmund-Ems Canal. " I see. You obviously knew your crew pretty well. How did you get to meet them? How did you crew up in the first place?" Just in the hall. Just crewed up. Found the pilot and found the navigator and we just crewed up. We were lucky. Best squadron of them all. No bullshit whatsoever. Superb squadron. Had the biggest losses of the war, my squadron.. We were five group, which was one of the top groups. All the dirty work was done by us.

The other crew members, Lieutenant Jacques Leroy, NCA navigator, Sub-Lieutenant Pierre-Louis Gautheret, bomber, Warrant Officer Henri Granier, radio operator, and Sergeant Yves Even, front gunner, were killed by Flak. Only the pilot, Staff Sergeant Louis Baillon, who though injured, remained at the controls to allow the evacuation of the survivors. He died in the crash.

1944-01-01HalifaxVLK734AL-CLeemingCross Country Navigation Exercise The crash occurred in day light when the a/c was on fire and attempting to land. The fire upset the pilot’s judgement and he failed to line up with the runway. Apart from missing the runway it is considered that the pilot showed considerable coolness and skill in saving his crew Survived - Killed in Action 15 Mar 1944Paradie Archive Database 429 Sqn Halifax LW690

After take off the a/c was levelled off at 1,100ft (+6 boost, 2650 rpm). As the a/c circled the airfield the Flight Engineer noticed that the fuel pressure warning light was on. Almost immediately the port inner engine caught fire. The fuel cock to the engine was cut and the engine was feathered. When the engine had stopped the graviner fire extinguisher switch was operated but had very little effect on the fire. The propeller unfeathered and began to rotate and the fire increased. An attempt was made to reach the runway but the a/c was finally forced to land in a small field at 1630 hrs.
Report by Chief Technical Officer: The fire started from a petrol leak forward of the engine bulkhead. AIB investigators believe it to have been from an improperly lock hollow bolt in the banjo of the fuel pressure warning light coming loose or entirely cut. This bolt on the other engines were improperly locked (by the manufacturers) but still tight. The graviner system failed to control the fire because the petroflexpipe was burned through behind the pilot’s cock and the fuel to No1 tank was not shut off by the crew. The a/c was damaged as much by contact with a tree, two houses and shelter as by the fire. (Extract - Report On A Flying Accident Or Forced Landing Not Attributable To Enemy Action)
