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

1944-05-10LancasterIIILM520WS:XBardney22:13Lille Railway YardsLM520 may have been a possible claim by Hptm Adolf Braves Stab IV./NJG1 - 5-20km North East of Luxemburg 3,500m at 00:05hrs. This is uncorroborated. (Nachtjagd Combat Archive (16 March 1944 - 11 May 1944) Part 2 - Theo Boiten). The aircraft crashed at Forest-sur-Marque (Nord), 9 kms East of LillKiARunnymede Memorial Panel 201As Acting Flt Lt. and while serving with 9 Sqn he was awarded the DFC London Gazette on 7th December 1943

He was Mentioned in Despatches (MiD) on 14th January 1944.

It seems likely that his body was recovered and buried locally but his name is now listed on the Runnymede Memorial. By searching the internet for this airman a posting by his brother on a webforum in 2005 was found, he stated that he had a copy of a letter to his father from the Air Ministry in 1947 stating that Gilbert's body was buried in Forest-Sur-Marque Communal Cemetery. It is likely that the Post-War wargraves investigation team could not identify his body when they exhumed his remains so he is commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial.(Aircraft Accidents in Yorkshire)

Son of Frank and Mabel Annie Bell, of Exeter.
