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

1944-08-31MosquitoXVIML985HS:BLittle Staughton21:10LeverkusenOne of 6 crews tasked on this mission. Loss unexplainedEvader DFC awarded whilst with 115 Sqn, Gazetted 26th June 1942. Citation reads "Pilot Officer Henry George A'COURT (46901), No. 115 Squadron. This officer was captain of an aircraft detailed to attack Bremen one night in June, 1942. Shortly after passing the Dutch coast the aircraft was attacked by a Junkers 88. The port wing and the hydraulic system were damaged, and the running of the port engine was impaired. By skilful manoeuvring Pilot Officer A'Court evaded his pursuer and proceeded to Bremen to complete hi& mission. When approaching the target, his, aircraft received further damage by antiaircraft fire; the starboard wing petrol tanks were also holed which caused an alarming, loss of petrol. With calm determination Pilot Officer A'Court decided that there was just a chance that he might be able to reach this country. After a hazardous journey he reached his base when the engines stopped through lack of petrol and he was compelled to land with the undercarriage retracted. This officer showed fine determination in fulfilling his mission after his aircraft had been so badly damaged, and his skill, courage and presence of mind during the return journey undoubtedly saved the lives of his crew."

Bar to DFC awarded whilst with 109 Sqn, as an acting Sqn Ldr., gazetted 21st September, 1945.
