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

1944-01-06SunderlandIIIJM709RAF Pembroke Dock05:37Percussion T.2Took off from Pembroke Dock to carry out an anti-submarine patrol in the Bay of Biscay (Percussion T.2). There was no messages received from the aircraft after takeoff, and it failed to return to base.

During combat with Sunderland JM709 of 228 Sqdn, Lt. Erich Stain was shot down and killed in his Fw190 G-3 Wrk.Nr 160819.

However, the Sunderland was then shot down at 15:23 hrs bout 190 km west of Brest by another Jagdkommando 1./S.A.Gr. 128 Fw190. (Credit: Air War Publications)
KilledRunnymede Memorial Panel 200DFC awarded as a Plt Off before 9th December 1941(no notification found) Note a Plt Off Henry Ronald Bailey RAFVR (88415) with 95 Sqn was awarded the DFC. London Gazette 25th July 1941. A later entry in the London Gazette has a notification that this entry should have been under RAF listing and not RAFVR listing - Mistake with Service No?

Bar to DFC awarded whilst a Fg Off with 95 Sqn (London Gazette 16th March 1943) Citation Reads:"Since the award of the Distinguished Flying Cross, Flying Officer Bailey has completed 800 flying hours. He has completed his duties with great skill and determination, often in extremely adverse weather. On one occasion he was pilot of a Sunderland flying boat when it was attacked by a Focke-Wulf Kurier over the Bay of Biscay. The first burst of enemy fire killed one of the mid-gunners and rendered the rear turret useless. The aircraft was holed in many places but, by skilful manoeuvring, Flying Officer Bailey continued the combat and drove off the attacker. On return to base, although the hull of the flying boat had been holed in many places below the water line, this officer successfully descended on the water without further mishap. He is an excellent pilot who has been a source of inspiration to the other members of his squadron."

Son of Henry Alfred and Esther Jane Bailey.
