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.

Shelsley Walsh
Also known as A F P Fane or Fane Fane

Born in India. Entered the March Mountain Speed Handicap at Brooklands coming second. Raced at the German Grand Prix. Raced at Le Mans. Won the Bucharest Grand Prix as well as the Tourist Trophy team prize in Belfast driving a BMW 328 in the same year. Mille Miglia won the 2.0 Litre class. He also set the fastest time on the Grossglockner hill climb, and won at Crystal Palace.

RAFVR at the outbreak of war. Became a pilot in the Photographic Reconnaissance Unit. Discovered the location of Tirpitz in January 1942. On the 18th July 1942 he was tasked with photographing the U-Boat yards at Flensburg, however, he encountered bad weather en route and aborted. Landed Spitfire BP921 at RAF Coltishall, but took off again into low cloud in a bid to return to his base at Benson. With the weather worsening he lowered the landing gear and turned towards a large field next to a railway line. Wingtip clipped a telegraph pole, crashing into the side of the railway embankment near Great Shelford railway station just south of Cambridge. Although the crash threw Fane clear of the wreckage, the impact killed him instantly.

He had flown 25 operational missions over enemy territory and had totalled 98 hours and 50 minutes of operational flying time.

In 1944, the Frazer Nash owners club erected a memorial in Fane’s home of Hedsor Priory but at the request of Fane’s wife, it was moved to Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb in 1992 where it still is today at the bottom of the ‘S’ bend. Fane’s ashes were scattered at Hedsor with a memorial stone being placed in St. Nicolas Churchyard, Hedsor.

A Typhoon fighter, subscribed for by the Borough of Sutton & Cheam, recently had a swastika painted on its fuselage to mark its first success in combat with an ME.109. A Canadian pilot - Flight Lieutenant Walter Ahrens of Rosetown, Saskatchewan, Canada, who was flying the 'Borough of Sutton and Cheam' engaged the enemy aircraft. Another Typhoon pilot in his squadron also took a hand, and the German aircraft blew up and fell in pieces into the sea. The 'Borough of Sutton and Cheam' has been flown by Flight Lieutenant Ahrens fifty time, and the pilot says it is a lucky aircraft.

I heard someone cry over the intercom “That last one got me.” Then my intercom went dead. The wire had been cut by a piece of shrapnel ... A short while after I felt a thump on my leg and knew I was hit ... The [American] M.O. gave us two and half bottles of whiskey between us and we made very short work of that - and did I need it. On examination the next day, we counted 188 flak holes and how none of us were killed is still a mystery.
