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.

Paradie Archive DatabaseSon of Dr. David Wesley (died 1955, age 75) and Mary Isobel (nee Allardyce - died 1968, age 84) Allen; husband of Honor Mary (nee Magee) Allen of 935 Chelsea Cloisters, Sloan Avenue, Paddington, London..

Further details: Born on the 28th December 1920. F/L Allen enlisted in Toronto in December 1940 where he did his intial training. After completion of elementary flying at No.7 EFTS, Windsor, he attended No.5 SFTS Brantford, Ontario, where he gained his wings on 4 August 1941 and soon after was commisioned as a pilot officer. Arriving in England in September, 1941 he was posted to No.17 OTU soon thereafter, before being taken on strength at No. 107 Squadron in March, 1942. Here he completed his first tour of operations flying Douglas Boston bombers out of Great Massingham, Norfolk, after which, he was back at No.17 OTU this time serving as an instructor. Posted back to operations a year later, he first underwent training on Lancasters at No.1679 Conversion Unit, East Moor, Yorkshire, before joining 432 Squadron on 12 December 1943. F/L Allen had completed six operations of his second tour when he was lost. On 15 October 1943, Epitaph: 'Triumpho Morte Tam Vit'. F/L Allen married Honor Mary Magee at the Church Of The Oratory, Kensington. They were married just 11 weeks. Honor Mary Allen never remarried and died at the age of 85 in 2002.

They were buried with the crew belonging to 514 Squadron Lancaster DS823.

(Extract from report from No4 MREU no name or dated) After several days of search I found a witness, Burgomeister Gabe of Essern who was able to guide me to the woods of a Lancaster. Burgomeister Gabe says that at 01:30 on Sunday 20 February 1944, two aircraft collided in mid air. None of the fragments were collected by the Luftwaffe, but they were unable to move tell section which was still at the scene of the crash. It was definitely a part of DS825 [sic] as they ....... were damaged registration numbers reading “D.S.” on one side and 82 on the other side. It was a complete tail section so there is no doubt that it was a Lancaster. Policeman Eserwych of Law confirmed date and other details of the crash from his diary.
