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.

1944-11-26StirlingIVLK151NF-ETempsford2000SOECrashed off Assens. He was lost whilst on an operation to resupply members of the Danish Resistance Movement.KilledRunnymede The Stirling took off on a mission to drop supplies to the Danish resistance at drop zone Tablejam 69 with the Danish name Rosalie on the island of Fyn. The position of the drop zone was 551747N 100600E and was found 13 km ENE of Assens and 2 km N of Glamsbjerg. The Stirling arrived over the drop zone at 23:25 hours and dropped its load on first pass. The reception committee from Odense received 18 containers and one package containing a Eureka. After this nothing was heard from the Stirling. The German War Diary reports: Kriegstagesbuch Des Kommandant im Abschnitt Südjülland for the night of 26 / 27 November 1944. 22:41 to 00:35: Flakalarm bef. V. Ugruko. Ca 6 feindliche Flugzeuge von W und O kommend, durchflogen mit verschiedenen kursen den Flakbereich mit flughöhen von 100,200 und 400 m. 2 Flugzeuge wurden von dem leichten Flakzeug Blaavand 6./204 mit 38 Schuss 2 cm beschossen. Erfolge wurden nicht beobachtet. Bei den Flugzeugen handelte es sich 4 mot. Störflugzeuge. The Stirling could well be one of the aircrafts reported to have been shot at by light flak from Blaavand. If so, it most probably crashed into the North Sea.
