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

John Jones Jarrold

Son of Christopher Pennycuick Bartlett and Dora Margaret Bartlett (née Smales), of Fort Qu'Appelle, Saskatchewan, Canada. Bartlett Lake in Saskatchewan named after him. Grave inscription: 'To All The World He Was But One, To Us He Was All The World'.

DFC Citation: Flight Lieutenant Christopher Smales Bartlett of 216 Squadron. One night in May, 1941, this officer carried out a flight which necessitated transporting a party of Royal Engineers and landing them beside a highly strategical railway bridge which it was intended to destroy. Much of the complete success of this daring and difficult operation can be attributed to the skill displayed by this officer. Flight Lieutenant Bartlett has also executed eleven successful night raids.

Bar to DFC: Acting Wing Commander Christopher Smales Bartlett, DFC of 434 (RCAF) Sqn. In the course of his second tour of operations this officer has attacked many strongly defended targets, including several attacks on Berlin and numerous others on industrial centres in the Ruhr. He is a forceful and courageous leader whose example has inspired all.

Abandoned near Abbeville time unknownPoW No. 27139 Stalag 344 Lamsdorf Paradie Archive Database WO Bastable was captured in the Rouen area in Sep 1942 and was held in various PoW camps. He made his first attempt to escape in May 1943. whilst with a working party at Metsdorf. Sudetenland, having obtained civilian clothes from the Czechs. His true identity was discovered and he was returned to Stalag 344. He then decided to make an immediate attempt to escape in an Army uniform. He cut the wires of a second floor window and timing his action to miss the guards, he jumped clear and escaped. He travelled in the direction of Prague but after three days he was discovered by some German civilians. He was handed over to the authorities and sent to a Gestapo prison where he was kept for 14 days in solitary confinement. He was sent back to Stalag Luft 344 and spent a further 10 days in solitary confinement. In Oct 1943. He made another attempt to escape by means of an emergency ladder in the main shaft of a coal mine in which he was working. He gained his liberty for 2 days after which he was recaptured by German police in company with a Czech Air Force Sgt. He made another attempt to escape from Stalag 344 but was recaptured and returned to camp. He and the same Czech Sgt. finally escaped in Oct 1944 by jumping from the roof cf their billets over the fence and proceeding into some woods nearby. Here they were assisted by Czech civilians. They eventually made contact with the Czech underground with arms and ammunition and took part in many operations. destroying railways, bridges, road Docks, and electrical installations. The Czech Sgt. was captured again and has not been heard of since. WO Bastable continued serving in the underground movement until he was liberated by the Russians in May 1945.

1942-12-21WellingtonIIIDF624AL-East MoorTrainingThe crew were undertaking a training flight from their base at East Moor and while the a/c was close to the North Yorkshire Moors the a/c suffered an electrical failure which caused the propellers on both engines to go into a fully fine pitch. This then caused the engines to over-rev and eventually to overheat. Fearing he was loosing control of the a/c the captain ordered his five crew to abandon the a/c, this was done successfully. The pilot and rear gunner received slight injuries on landing, the pilot suffered his injuries after landing on a fence. The a/c crashed near Kirkby, a few miles south of Stokesley and was destroyed. RAF East Moor took charge of the crash site; they sent transport to collect the crew, put a guard on the a/c and destroyed secret equipment it was carrying.
