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

1944-05-10LancasterIIIND494OL:GConingsby22:28GennevilliersClaim by Walter Prues 7/NJG1 - 26km North East of Lisieux: 1,500m at 01:02. (Nachtjagd Combat Archives 1944 Part 2 - Theo Boiten). The aircraft was hit by light flak at low level when passing close to Rouen homebound. Flt Lt. Meredith tried to gain height, but the Lancaster was attacked by a night fighter, which set the starboard wing on fire, and a crash-landing was carried out on a hillside between Rouen and Caen, about twenty miles short of the Normandy coast. (83 Squadron - Chris Ward)PoW No 5109, Stalag Luft 3Flt Sgt Wheatley was awarded DFM whilst with 207 Sqn. London Gazette 20th November 1942. Citation: 778287 Flight Sergeant William James ROSE, No. 207 Squadron. 1271000 Sergeant Ronald Sydney WILSON, No. 207 Squadron. Aus.408145 Sergeant John Henry LOVELL, Royal Australian Air Force, No. 207 Squadron. 1258979 Sergeant Arthur John PERRIN, No. 207 Squadron. Can./R.100368 Flight Sergeant Charles Woodrow Wilson PECK, Royal Canadian Air Force, No. 207 Squadron. As navigator, pilot, wireless operator/air gunner and rear gunner respectively, these airmen flew in an aircraft which took part in an attack on Le Creusot on 17th October, 1942. Shortly after taking off, engine trouble developed. Despite great efforts, Sergeant Wilson was unable to continue his mission and course was set for base. Near to the French coast, whilst flying at only 40 feet above the sea, the aircraft was attacked by three enemy float planes. In the face of a trying situation Sergeant Wilson displayed fine airmanship and, splendidly supported by his gunners whose skill destroyed two of them and drove off the third, he eventually flew the aircraft back to an aerodrome in this country. During the combat Flight Sergeant Rose coolly continued his duties and his subsequent navigation was of the greatest assistance to his pilot. Throughout, this crew displayed great courage, high skill and perfect teamwork.

1940-05-15Fairey BattleAttack on Albert Canal Bridges

RAF cover for the 60th Anniversary of the Battle of France in May/June 2000 with artwork by Tony Theobald. The cover commemorates the involvement of the Royal Air Force in the attempt to stop the advancing German forces from occupying more Allied countries in 1940. The artwork shows Fairey Battles of 12 Squadron on 12 May 1940 over the Albert Canal, Belgium, while Hawker Hurricanes provide top cover to engage any enemy fighters. The RAF was ordered to destroy a vital bridge, which was being used by the enemy, and five Fairey Battle bombers were despatched with Flying Officer Garland leading the attack. They met an inferno of anti-aircraft fire, but the mission was accomplished, due to the expert leadership of Flying Officer Garland and the coolness and resource of his navigator Thomas Gray. Only one bomber managed to get back to base, the leading aircraft and three others did not return for which Garland and Gray were awarded posthumous Victoria Crosses. The medal featured on the cover is the French Croix de Guerre which was awarded to some of the RAF aircrew that took part. This cover has been hand signed by Squadron Leader Rex Wheeldon AFC, who was a Fairey Battle pilot with 12 Sqd Advanced Air Strike Force (AASF).
