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

Paradie Archive Database
A Typhoon fighter, subscribed for by the Borough of Sutton & Cheam, recently had a swastika painted on its fuselage to mark its first success in combat with an ME.109. A Canadian pilot - Flight Lieutenant Walter Ahrens of Rosetown, Saskatchewan, Canada, who was flying the 'Borough of Sutton and Cheam' engaged the enemy aircraft. Another Typhoon pilot in his squadron also took a hand, and the German aircraft blew up and fell in pieces into the sea. The 'Borough of Sutton and Cheam' has been flown by Flight Lieutenant Ahrens fifty time, and the pilot says it is a lucky aircraft.
