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

1943-06-19LancasterIIIEE116PG-QRAF Woodhall SpaFriedrichshaven- Zeppelin shedsThis was one of four aircraft involved in the raid on Friedrichshaven. The aircraft sustained damaged to the bomb doors and the electrical harnesses to nose and tail and killing Flt.Sgt. McCleod’s Bomb Aimer, Sgt. May. All five bombed successfully and encountered electrical storms encountered at Orleans but landed safely at Blida, North Africa.KilledEl Alia Cemetery Algeria Plot 12 Row G Grave 4Son of Robert Ambrose May, and of Frances Honoria May, of Merton Park, Surrey

A month earlier on the 18th May, Sgt May had scored a direct hit from 20,000 ft during a training exercise, using the ABS bombsight.

On their return from North Africa, all five aircraft successfully completed an attack on Spezia, Italy and then flew back and landed safely at RAF Woodhall Spa. With these two ops Flt.Sgt. McCleod and his crew completed their tour of operations.

EE116 was lost on the 11/12 April 1944 when it failed to return from Aachen. It will be remembered that Flt.Sgt. McCleod and his crew were on of the three crews left behind at Woodhall by 97 Sqn to form the nucleus of the new 619 Sqn. (Extract from 619 The history of a Forgotten Squadron - Bryan Clark)
