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

KilledRunnymede Memorial

Read Archive Report

The aircraft had taken off from Linton-on-Ouse and successfully bombed the target (combined raids on Ludwigshafen, Mannheim and various ports). 43 aircraft took part in the air raid made up with Wellingtons, Blenheims and Whitleys. This aircraft was the only aircraft lost on these raids, presumed having been hit by flak over the target area, and they crashed into the sea off Torbay, Devon. All the crew were killed. At this relatively early stage of the air war a single night’s operations rarely exceeded 100 aircraft. Raids were piecemeal formations sent out to attack a multitude of targets on any given night.
