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

1944-06-02HalifaxIIILV792NP:ELissett22:16TrappesAttacked by a night fighter which tore a massive hole in the centre section of the aircraft. During the confusion of the blaze, three of the crew are thought to have fallen out. Two survived, unfortunately Sgt Dwan’s body was never found.

Plt Off Bancroft landed the aircraft RAF Hurn at 02:49. The aircraft was totally beyond repair (Cat E). The instrument panel was salvaged and is now on display in the Australian War Memorial Museum Canberra. The four members of crew who returned were decorated for their bravery.

LV792 was claimed by Hptm Fritz Sothe 4/NJG4 North of Evreux (UC): 2,700m at 01:19. Victory listed in OKL/RLM 4/NJG4. Confirmed Abschussubersicht, but no confirmation date. (Nachtjagd Combat Archives 1944 Part 3 – Theo Boiten).
SafeAwarded DFC. Gazetted 17 July 1944: Citation reads: "These officers and airman were air bomber, pilot, navigator and air gunner respectively, of an aircraft detailed to attack Trappes. The target was successfully attacked and on the return flight the aircraft was attacked, by an enemy fighter, causing. extensive damage. The inter-communication system was put out of action. The navigational instruments were rendered useless whilst fires broke out in the bomb bays and fuselage; the starboard inner engine also caught light. The situation seemed most serious, but Pilot Officer Bancroft held resolutely to his course.. Meanwhile Flying Officer Tansley and Pilot Officer Fripp promptly directed their efforts towards fighting the 'fires. They were quickly joined by Sergeant Arundel who had struggled his way out of his damaged turret. Together these members of the crew finally succeeded in extinguishing the flames. Afterwards they co-operated splendidly with their captain. Pilot Officer Bancroft, who flew the badly damaged aircraft to an airfield in this country. In harassing circumstances these members of aircraft- crew displayed coolness, courage and devotion to duty worthy high praise."
