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

Owing to a restriction placed by our hosting service, searches cannot be made on less than 4 characters. Searching on 3 or less will produce no results even though the name IS in our database. If you seek info on a name with less than 4 characters, EMAIL with name and database to search and we will perform the search manually for you.
We are working on techniques to mitigate this restriction.

31 operational sorties with the squadron, including as Illuminator for the raid on the Fiume Torpedo Works, 21 January 1944.

Son of Mr and Mrs G. G. Adams of Cherington Road, Henleaze, Gloucestershire. He was ‘educated at Bishop Road School and volunteered for service in the R.A.F. when he was 19. He received his training in Canada and America, where he was awarded his wings and is now a pilot. He was a King’s Scout and assistant Scoutmaster of the Northcote troop, and is a keen swimmer and cricketer. As a boy he was leading chorister at St. Peter’s, Henleaze. While in America he and other British airmen in training arranged shows to entertain the American soldiers and after a performance at the Girls’ College, Lakeland, Florida, Flight Sergeant Adams was invited to broadcast. He was heard in two broadcasts on the American network giving impressions with a colleague of the Western Brothers. The material, which included many topical and local illusions was written by Flight Sergeant Adams, and many letters of appreciation were received from all part of the United States. Flight Sergeant Adams, before joining up, was employed by the Bristol Corporation Electricity Department.’ (Bristol Evening World, 23 May 1944, refers) Adams was posted as a pilot for operational flying with 150 Squadron (Wellingtons) at Kairouan West, Tunisia, in July 1943. The Squadron were engaged in strategic night bombing on targets in Sicily and Italy, as part of the Mediterranean Strategic Air Force. He flew in at least 31 operational sorties with the squadron, including: Salerno Marshalling Yards; Montecorvino; Aquino; Lid Da Roma; Beaches between Messina and Cape Peloro (3); Beaches south of Messina and in an around Cape Barbi; Beaches at Pizzo; Piterbo; Battipaglia Marshalling Yards; Bagnoli Marshalling Yards; Civetavecchio Marshalling Yards; Villa Literno; Grossetto Marshalling Yards; Frosinone; Pisa Marshalling Yards; Formia; Terracine; Marciguliana; Porto Civitanore Railway Bridge; Guildonia; and the night attack on the Fiume Torpedo Works, 21 January 1944. Adams flew as the Illuminator with 6 other Wellingtons during the raid on Fiume. A total of 7.5 tons of bombs were dropped on the target from a height of 6,000-7,000 feet. The raid was considered a success, with multiple buildings and oil tanks destroyed. Having been awarded the D.F.M., and completed his tour of operations, Adams was posted as an Instructor to No. 76 O.T.U., Aqir, Palestine. He, and his pupil Lieutenant MacDonald, were killed in a flying accident, 25 August 1944. On the latter date Adams had been flying a Wellington during a searchlight co-operation at Haifa.
