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.

Memorial at crash site

Paradie Archive Database
Excavation of crash site in Holland 2014

Of the crew of seven, only three crew members were officially accounted for, and are buried near Amersfoort. The other four were officially still Missing in Action, and remembered on the Runnymede memorial. However, a war grave at the local cemetery at Wapenveld contains the remains of 2 unidentified crew members that were recovered from the wreck in the weeks after the 1943 crash when the main wreckage was lifted from the canal. Now after 73 years all crew members will have a final resting place: Sgt. Thomas Victor Trollope (tailgunner, age 22), W/O Frederick Henry Blake (pilot, age 26) and WO2 Rodney Webber (gunner, age 21) had been identified in 1943 and are buried in Oud Leusden. Sgt. Philip Henry Eldridge (wireless operator, age 29), Sgt. William David Hawkins (navigator, age 23), Sgt. John Ceredig Jones (bombaimer, age 31) and Sgt. Gerard Stanley Walters (engineer, age 22) had been declared missing in 1943. Unidentified remains of 2 crew members found during recovery operations in 1943 have been buried in Wapenveld since 1943, but did not account for all four crew members. A further investigation and recovery effort shortly after the war did not produce any further remains. The 2014 full excavation did, and the BIDKL was then able to identify all four remaining missing crew members. They will be laid to rest in Wapenveld. The existing memorial headstone to the unknown RAF crewmember(s) that was erected by local villagers will be retained and joined by four CWGC headstones.

Born on the 01st June 1921 at Missoula, USA Son of Fred W. and Onia Webber. Of Bellingham, Washington, USA.
