Search function ONLY searches contents of this database. If you want to Search the entire site, use the Search icon in the Menu Bar.
The new consolidated database incorporates into a single database data from ALL Commands and ALL National units operating within the RAF structure. The Bomber Command Database remains in place for readers who have previously bookmarked it (we understand: old habits die hard, but trust us the new database is superior), but will not be updated. All existing data in the Bomber Command Database and all new data is to be found in the new Allied Losses and Incidents Database.

We made this change because we wanted to bring together data on ALL incidents, not just those where the plane and/or crew were lost. We also wanted to bring into a single home data on all Commands, not just Bomber Command because many readers are unsure of the Command in which their relative served.

The Bomber Command Database is NOT being updated. We are adding hundreds of new data points each month to the Allied Losses and Incidents database.

Use our powerful custom-built facility to Search on Name, Rank, Air Force, Aircraft, Serial, RAF Station, Location Duty, Incident, Fate, Buried or Commemorated.
NOTE: For consistency, Date of Death is given as the date the mission was briefed since the precise time of a loss is not always certain. Take-off was usually later the same day as the briefing, though occasionally a delay meant take-off occurred after midnight and therefore strictly the 'next day'. Our date is always the briefing date. Obviously many 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 date. Bear this in mind when cross-referencing to our Luftwaffe Victories by Name/Date Database and other Luftwaffe sources.
