Data derived from many sources. Corrections/Additions welcomed via Helpdesk
This database consolidates all data previously held in our Fighter Command and Bomber Command databases and that held in our Polish Honour Roll database

* 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. Our date is always the Take Off date as this 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. (Earlier readers may remember we stated our date was the Briefing Date, but it is in fact the TAKE OFF date). 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 date we change our record if necessary

Aircrew Deaths Database
In his first contact with enemy aircraft on 29 December 1944 he destroyed five planes. By the end of January 1945 he had claimed a further five victories and shared a sixth. He was killed in action on 3 March 1945 near Coesfeld, Germany.. Commemorated Runnymede Memorial, Panel 278. United Kingdom. Son Of Paul And Edewisca Audet; Husband Of Iris Christina Audet, Of Pinner, Middlesex. On March 3, 1945, Flight Lieutenant Audet was strafing a German train west of Munster. The train returned fire and Audet’s Spitfire crashed to the ground. It was not immediately known if he was killed in the crash, and for a time it was believed that he had been taken prisoner by the Germans. When he did not return at the end of the war, an official inquiry was held and although there was some evidence that he may have been killed while in German custody, it could not be conclusively determined.
