Data derived from many sources. Corrections/Additions welcomed via Helpdesk
This database consolidates all data previously held in our Fighter Command and Bomber Command databases and that held in our Polish Honour Roll database

* 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. Our date is always the Take Off date as this 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. (Earlier readers may remember we stated our date was the Briefing Date, but it is in fact the TAKE OFF date). 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 date we change our record if necessary

1942-10-12WellingtonIIZ8532PH-PWickenby1734GardeningAfter dropping two mines in the shipping channel in the mouth of the River Elbe and the crew made for home. The rear gunner suspected that their a/c was being followed by a German night fighter so the pilot flew as low as possible despite the dark night. Approaching the English coastline the crew were unsure of their location so attempted to gain height but as power was applied the port engine cut out. The pilot then ordered his crew to bale out. The rear gunner left the a/c but as they were flying at a height of 100ft his parachute failed to deploy properly and he was killed. The rest of the crew stayed in the a/c, which then crashed at around 0030 hrs near RAF Langtoft, between Driffield and Malton. The bomb aimer was thrown out during the crash and died of his injuries in the early hours of the following morning.

According to other sources, it is also possible that the damage to the machine caused by an attack by a German night fighter. With the autopilot turned on, the Halifax flew to the Alps, where it crashed on the rock face below the Kreuzkarspitze (2,591m).
