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

DSO Citation: 'This officer has participated in a very large number of sorties, involving attacks on a wide range of well defended enemy targets. He is a fearless and devoted member of aircraft crew, whose determination to bomb his targets accurately has won him great success. In the air and on the ground his conduct has been exemplary and he had set the finest example of devotion to duty, never sparing himself in his efforts to strike at the enemy at every opportunity.'

DFC Citation: During the many night operations this officer has been engaged upon, his work as navigator has been conspicuous for its skill and determination. He had guided his captain through the enemy defences to release his bombs with unvarying accuracy, achieving excellent results. An outstanding observer, Flight Lieutenant Baker has set a splendid example to his fellow navigators.'

1944-01-01LancasterIW4831KM-CDunholme Lodge2350BerlinThe aircraft was heading in a westerly direction and exploded in the air at 150ft approximately 1km North of the village Lynow. The Burgermeister went to the scene of the crash and saw what he believed to be five bodies, possibly two more taking into account the smashed limbs which were strewn about. The police at Juterbog were notified by telephone and a Luftwaffe team arrived to investigate. They ordered the Burgermeister to bury the crew and he was also present at the burial on 3 Jan 1944.

1944-08-09LancasterIIIPB1236O:OLittle Staughton06:30le Havre – Strong Points near garrisonPilot Officer Mackenzie reported: “At 7.15am on 8 September 1944, the plane came in over Le Havre under the cloud with a base of 5,000 feet. The Germans opened up with flak hitting us. I was sitting at the side of Johnny (Goddard) in the second pilot’s seat, when there was a crash, the intercom went dead and fire broke out around the wireless operator. There was a second bang right after the first and the whole front cabin filled with smoke and fire. Johnny shouted for full power and then shouted “jump Mac”. I got down and went back to the navigator’s cabin which was full of smoke, and dragged my chute out, then Neville’s, and then shouted into the smoke that we had to get out. A voice shouted OK. I turned back to the front escape hatch with two figures behind me, which might have been Neville and Howard. When I reached the hatch, it was open and Alan De Beer was just jumping. I went straight out over his heels. After my chute opened I could see the plane with all of the fuselage on fire flying on, until it disappeared into cloud. I looked below and saw another chute, Alan De Beer. After coming down some distance, I heard a crash which I assumed was the plane hitting the ground, but could not see any more chutesKilledSte Marie Cemetery Le Havre Division 67 Row G Grave 9.
