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

1943-06-21StirlingIIIBK712HA-GDownham Market.0014.KrefeldCrashed NE Arschot BelgiumKilledLangdorp ChurchyardOn 21-22 June 1943, Bomber Command dispatched a 705 aircraft strong force for Krefeld in Germany. Short Stirling Mk. III (BK712/HA-D) took off from Downham Market at 0014 hrs. The aircraft was captained by Plt Off. William Golder Shillinglaw (412846, RAAF). Helvard was flying as second pilot on his first operation at the squadron. It was not unusual for a new pilot to fly as second pilot to a more experienced pilot before flying as captain for the first time. This was Shillinglaw’s third operation, since he had joined the squadron in early June. The target visibility over Krefeld was good on this night, and the taget was marked almost perfectly by the Pathfinders. More than 600 aircraft released their bombs on Krefeld and a large area of fire developed raging for several hours. 44 aircraft were lost, and BK712 was one of them. Helvard’s crew never made it to the target. The aircraft was successfully attacked by a German night fighter piloted by Lt Heinz-Wolfgang Schnaufer of Stab I./NJG1. It was his 13th aerial victory. At 0133 hrs. the aircraft crashed at Langdorp about 60 km North-east of Bruxelles at 0133 hrs. F/O Helvard had just been attached from 1651 HCU
