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.

1944-06-14HalifaxIIIMZ305HD:?Leconfield13:14Cross Country TrainingThe aircraft crashed at 14:43 near Deopham Green Airfield, 13 miles West-South-West of Norwich. An extract from a subsequent Court of Inquiry which appears on Casualty file 166/37/439 refers to the following : “Sgt Tosh stated that no trouble was experienced in the aircraft except for unknown trouble of starboard engines at 25,000ft. The air temperature was not excessively low –38 degree C. If coring did occur, the pilot used the wrong procedure when he feathered the props and stopped the engines.” An opinion was also expressed (by whom is not stated) that “the aircraft stalled and the engines failed to respond immediately to the throttles because of congealed oil in the CSU’s and the low oil temperature in the engines due to prolonged flying from a high altitude with the engines throttled back.Sgt Wren died from his injuries on 23 June 1944Denny and Dunnipace Cemetery Section J Grave 854.Son of Robert and Elizabeth Wren, of Bonnybridge
