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

Flying on to Blida Airfield in North Africa, Grimes and his crew were scheduled to return on 17-18 November, routed out over the Bay of Biscay. Grimes was killed in action on this flight when Lancaster ED735, piloted by Flight Lieutenant E. E. G. Youseman, DFC, and crewed by a very experienced crew that contained no fewer than four DFM recipients, was lost without trace, having probably falling victim to enemy fighters over the Bay. All the crew were killed.

They were buried with the crew belonging to 514 Squadron Lancaster DS823.

(Extract from report from No4 MREU no name or dated) After several days of search I found a witness, Burgomeister Gabe of Essern who was able to guide me to the woods of a Lancaster. Burgomeister Gabe says that at 01:30 on Sunday 20 February 1944, two aircraft collided in mid air. None of the fragments were collected by the Luftwaffe, but they were unable to move tell section which was still at the scene of the crash. It was definitely a part of DS825 [sic] as they ....... were damaged registration numbers reading “D.S.” on one side and 82 on the other side. It was a complete tail section so there is no doubt that it was a Lancaster. Policeman Eserwych of Law confirmed date and other details of the crash from his diary.

Note: 514 Sqn lost 3 aircraft on this night DS736/DS823/LL681
