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.

1942-03-27WhitleyVT4166NF-BTempsford SOE. Operation WATERCRESS/CATARRH, the first of a series of operations involving the dropping of Dutch agents, code named Nordpol Spiel by the British and England Spiel by the Dutch. Claim by Ofw Siegfried Ney 5/NJG2 - Sea North of Petten (Salzhering) 0008. Ofw Ney and his BF Uffw Buhler flying in Bf110 D-2 R4+AN of 5/NJG2 dispatched a 138 Squadron Whitley. Aircraft crashed into sea 0015 at Den Helder, South of Texel about 200 - 500 metres offshore between Petten and Callantsoog. The Whitley (that had dropped a secret agent at Steenwijk) exploded with such force that only moments later the Messerschmidt crashed near Petten with the loss of Ney and his Funker (Radio Operator). (Nachtjagd Combat Archives 1942 - Theo Boiten)KilledLocation of burial not known. Remembered on a War Graves Foundation memorial in The Hague The agent, A A Baatsen (Watercress) parachuted near Steenwijk (Overijssel) some 30 km N of Zwolle and was captured almost immediately. After two-and-a-half years of interrogation, he was executed 7 September 1944 in Mauthausen Concentration Camp. The site of the DZ, in the moorlands north of Steenwijk, was suggested by the Germans and approved by London. London was warned by the Lauwers a captured Dutch SOE Agent transmitting for the Abwehr and leaving out his personal security checks by W/T but was ignored repeatedly. Baatsen was the first SOE Agent to fall into this trap. The German subsequently sent a signal that the mission had been successfully accomplished.
