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

1944-03-24LancasterIDV328PG-LConingsby1853BerlinCrashed south of Teltow some 16km SW from the centre of Berlin. Plt.Off. Thompson and his crew were on their second operation. Their first operation had been to Frankfurt two days previously

Eighteen a/c from 619 Sqn took part in this operation. The weather was good enough to start the mission. But they encountered strong winds en route, blowing many crews off course and into heavily defended areas. There was no cloud and numerous encounters took place with night fighters. The winds made for high closing speeds over the target and bombing was difficult and consequently not accurate.

Thirteen of the twenty bombers lost on this mission were shot down by night-fighters but it has not been possible to determine the fate of DV328
