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

1942-11-01BostonIIIZ2224RH-Oulton1256St-Omer88 Squadron ORB, 6 aircraft detailed to bomb St Omer airdrome. Z2224 took off at 12:56 from Oulton. Approximately halfway between the enemy coast and the target at 13:43, Z2224 (P/O D.K. HULME) was seen to climb above the formation and then spin slowly to the ground. Crashed near St OmerKilledDunkerque Town Cemetery
332 Squadron ORB: 1. November 1942. Bomber-Escort 13.25-14.40. Maj. Mohr DFC l (in AD279) led, airborne 13.25 from Manston. Briefing held that 332 Squadron was the close, and only escort, for 6 Bostons bombing St. Omer airfield. Squadron briefed to go in first and subdue the Flak on the airfield. After re-forming the same procedure was to be used at St. Inglevert airfield. The rendezvous was made at 13.30 over North Foreland, and course set at zero feet. Crossed the French coast , east of Calais, still at zero feet at 13.30 hrs. Intense light-Flak was encountered in the Calais area. Squadron proceed direct to St. Omer/Longuenesse where the pilots were constantly subjected to 20-mm. Flak, which accounted for one of the Bostons. Owing to the thick mist in the St. Omer area, the Bostons turned back before reaching the target. They made one orbit to port, and then two orbits to starboard, just after making their initial turn back. They completely lost formation, and made it impossible for us to escort them. Eight FW 190s were then observed, and the Bostons broke away singly into the mist after jettisoning their bombs. About 2 miles N.W. St. Omer airfield, Red 2, 2/Lt. T.A. Waerner (in W3125) broke formation with white smoke pouring from his aircraft. Heard to say on R/T that his glycol-system had been hit. He climbed and announced that he would bale-out: this he was unable to do, and we saw him belly-land in a field. Squadron climbed to 6,000-feet and made landfall-out by Cap Gris Nez.
