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

1944-01-01LancasterIIIJB640GT-VWarboys9BerlinThere were two claims for 4 engined aircraft over Berlin- Ofw. Eduard Ries 2/JG 302 and Ofw. Kurt Welter 5/JG 302. Both flew Fw 190 fitted with FuG 217 radar. (Nachtjagd - War Diaries Vol 1 - Dr. Theo E.W. Boiten)KilledRunnymede Memorial Panel 241The MOD released a statement in April 2016. "We have discovered the identity of some unknown airmen who are buried in communal graves in Berlin War Cemetery. We have unfortunately not been able to pinpoint which crew members are contained within the grave but we do know that they came from Lancaster JB640 (156 Squadron) and Halifax LK709 (77 Squadron). We are now in the process of changing the headstone to reflect that the graves contain the crew members of these two planes. We are planning to hold a re-dedication service on 27 April at 1100 for Lancaster JB640 and 14:00 for Halifax LK709. The re-dedication services will concentrate on commemorating all of the crew members for each aircraft lost during WW2. We have several family members attending, including the widow of one of the pilots. The Defence Attaché will also be present. Wreaths will be laid and our Berlin Branch of the Royal British Legion will be in attendance. (Further information available on request)
