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

26 aircraft and crews took off at approximately 17.15hrs to attack BOCHUM in the heart of the Ruhr. 2 returned with problems. 9/10 cloud en route, but over the channel this decreased and gradually cleared. The target free from cloud, industrial haze present. Target Markers were punctual and fairly accurate, bombing was well concentrated, whole area a mass of fire, visible for 100 miles plus large explosions. Ground defences moderate, occasionally becoming intense, with many searchlights in evidence exposing one cone of about 20 or more, first ineffective, but later more troublesome, several aircraft being coned. Night fighters very active and fighter flares were seen from the Dutch coast onwards. Many combats in which 550Sqn involved, 'B2' (F/O Whynacht) had 4 encounters, claims 2 jets destroyed and damaged another, whilst the other was inconclusive. No damage or casualties. 'M' (F/O McCarthy) and 'P' (P/O Franklyn (R)) both fired at two jets but no claims. 'V' (F/O Blackler) claims a jet. All aircraft returned to Base except 'F' (F/O Ansell) who landed at Manston after Flak damage, the F/Eng (F/S Sythes) wounded in thigh. Notable that 'F' completed 100th operational sortie.

Enlisted on the 07th May 1940 at Levin.Pilots badge awarded on the 30th September 1940 and promoted to sergeant on the 22nd November 1940 after training with No. 2 Elementary Flying Training School and No. 2 Flying Training School.

A total of 641 flying hours logged and on his 57th operational sortie.

Only Kiwi among the 14 servicemen buried at the small Midvaag Military Cemetery in the Faroes.

Tail gunner recounts aircraft had taken off from its base in Wick, Scotland, and that a combination of fog and radio silence meant the crew could not establish their location and the aircraft crashed into the mountainside. The survivor made his way down hill and met a group of shepherds. Some helped him down to the British army base in the village of Tvoroyri, while others went to the burning aircraft. Haeusler was still alive so they carried him by stretcher to the little village hospital, but he died the following day. He and his crewmates were buried a few days later. Remnants of the aircraft wreck remain on the mountainside, and the story of the crash has been passed on through generations of islanders.

Haeusler, known as "Jack", was one of three brothers raised in Ruatoki and educated in Opotiki. He gained his wings in 1940 and was engaged to be married when he went to war in late 1940.
