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

The Germans opened up with flak hitting us. I was sitting at the side of Johnny (Goddard) in the second pilot’s seat, when there was a crash, the intercom went dead and fire broke out around the wireless operator. There was a second bang right after the first and the whole front cabin filled with smoke and fire. Johnny shouted for full power and then shouted “jump Mac”. I got down and went back to the navigator’s cabin which was full of smoke, and dragged my chute out, then Neville’s, and then shouted into the smoke that we had to get out. A voice shouted OK. I turned back to the front escape hatch with two figures behind me, which might have been Neville and Howard. When I reached the hatch, it was open and Alan De Beer was just jumping. I went straight out over his heels. After my chute opened I could see the plane with all of the fuselage on fire flying on, until it disappeared into cloud. I looked below and saw another chute, Alan De Beer. After coming down some distance, I heard a crash which I assumed was the plane hitting the ground, but could not see any more chutesCapturedLiberated when Fort Tourneville le Havre surrendered on 12 September 1944. Interviewed 14th September 1944.(RAF Evaders – Oliver Clutton Brock)

Plt Off Mackenzie was awarded the DFC whilst with 582 Squadron. Gazetted 12th December 1944.

The aircraft sustained damaged to the bomb doors and the electrical harnesses to nose and tail and killing Flt.Sgt. McCleod’s Bomb Aimer, Sgt. May. All five bombed successfully and encountered electrical storms encountered at Orleans but landed safely at Blida, North Africa.KilledEl Alia Cemetery Algeria Plot 12 Row G Grave 4Son of Robert Ambrose May, and of Frances Honoria May, of Merton Park, Surrey

A month earlier on the 18th May, Sgt May had scored a direct hit from 20,000 ft during a training exercise, using the ABS bombsight.

On their return from North Africa, all five aircraft successfully completed an attack on Spezia, Italy and then flew back and landed safely at RAF Woodhall Spa. With these two ops Flt.Sgt. McCleod and his crew completed their tour of operations.

EE116 was lost on the 11/12 April 1944 when it failed to return from Aachen. It will be remembered that Flt.Sgt. McCleod and his crew were on of the three crews left behind at Woodhall by 97 Sqn to form the nucleus of the new 619 Sqn. (Extract from 619 The history of a Forgotten Squadron - Bryan Clark)
