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

1943-12-20HalifaxVLK644ZL-CLeeming1630FrankfurtShot down by a night-fighter flown by Hptm. Martin Becker and crashed at Weilmünster/Hessen. Several crews from the squadron were either attacked by or observed enemy fighters, and crews reported intense flak opposition and search lights.Killed Age 30Hannover War Cemetery Coll. grave 4. C. 13-19.
Paradie Archive DatabaseOn 20–21 December, the target was Frankfurt. Frankfurt. 650 aircraft, 41 losses (6.3%). The German controllers were able to accurately plot the route as soon as the main force left the English coast and were therefore able to deploy night-fighters at many points along its route. A diversionary raid on Mannheim failed to draw off many fighters until the main raid was over. The target was mainly cloud covered whereas the forecast had predicted clear conditions. Marking did not, therefore, go to plan. The Germans used both decoy fires and also decoy target indicator. By a twist of good fortune, considerable creepback resulted in the bombing coming back over the city. Many public and municipal buildings were hit including many schools. 23000 people were bombed out of their homes. Three Danes were part of the raid: Fg Off. Niels Erik Westergaard and both Sondergaard brothers. This was Sondergaard’s final operation. The crew failed to return. Halifax V LK644/ZL-C took off from RAF Station Leeming at 16.15 hours, and nothing was heard from the crew following take off. The crew of seven was killed. Shot down by a night-fighter flown by Hptm. Martin Becker and crashed at Weilmünster/Hessen. Several crews from the squadron were either attacked by or observed enemy fighters, and crews reported intense flak opposition and search lights.

Son of Robert Lorne Dudley and Katherine Dudley (née Leach), of North Bay, Ontario, Canada. Husband of Lillian Irene Dudley (née Lougheed), whom he married at Fort William on 15 August 1942.
