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

Personnal date on Paradie RCAF Archive Halifax LV898, piloted by Squadron Leader J. M. Bissett, DFM was detailed to attack Nuremberg, as part of the main force of 795 aircraft, and was shot down by an enemy night-fighter and crashed at Herhahn, 4km north west of Schleiden, on 30-31 March 1944. All the crew were killed.

The raid on Nuremberg on the night of 30-31 March 1944 was the blackest night for Bomber Command in the whole of the War, with some 96 aircraft lost. 'The Bomber Command War Diaries' by Martin Middlebrook gives the following account: ‘This would normally have been the moon and stand down period for the main bomber force but a raid on the distant target of Nuremberg (8 hours round trip) was planned on the basis of a forecast predicting protective high cloud on the outward route. 795 aircraft were despatched. The German Controller ignored all diversions and assembled his fighters at 2 radio beacons which happened to be astride the route to Nuremberg. The first night fighters appeared just before the bombers reached the Belgian border and a fierce battle in the moonlight lasted for the next hour. 82 bombers were lost on the outward route. The action was much reduced on the return flight, when most of the night fighters had had to land but 96 bombers were lost in total, the largest Bomber Command loss of the war. The main raid over Nuremberg was a failure, the city was covered in thick cloud and a fierce cross wind which developed on the final target approach made the Pathfinder aircraft move too far to the East, little damage was caused. Subsequent research showed that 120 aircraft had bombed Schweinfurt, 50 miles to the North West of Nuremberg and that there had been a 10 mile ‘creep back’ in the main bombing.’ Three Halifax’s from 427 Squadron were lost in the raid with only two crew members surviving. 'The Nuremberg Raid' by Martin Middlebrook gives additional information onLV898: ‘At least nine flight commanders went missing, all killed. 427 Sqd lost both A and B flight commanders- Squadron Leader’s Bissett, DFM, and Laird, DFC both Manitobans. Bissett’s crew had already caused anxiety on the squadron when starting their second tour by their apparent unconcern at the importance of keeping on course and his loss was not unexpected. In fact, Bissett’s Halifax had crashed almost exactly on track south of Aachen.’
