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

Citation: Distinguished Flying Cross. Flying Officer Ronald Ernest AMEY (146973), R.A.F.V.R., 50 Sqn. Distinguished Flying Medal. 1682895 Sergeant George William LANE, R.A.F.V.R., 50 Sqn. This officer and airman were pilot and wireless operator (air) of an aircraft detailed to attack Bremen one night in October, 1944. Whilst over the target an explosion occurred inside the bomber which quickly became filled with smoke whilst several fires commenced. The navigator was severely injured. In the face of an apparently serious situation Flying Officer Amey gave the order to prepare to abandon aircraft. Only then did he become aware of the plight of his wounded comrade. He promptly rescinded the order to abandon and attempted to regain control of the aircraft. He succeeded in so doing. Meanwhile Sergeant Lane made great efforts to put out the fires. By using extinguishers, then dowsing the flames with tea from flasks and even beating out the flames with his hands he finally succeeded. Although deprived of the services of the navigator, Flying Officer Amey set course for home. Eventually an airfield was reached and a safe landing was effected. Throughout the return flight Sergeant Lane gave invaluable service to his captain. His hands had been badly burned but he worked his wireless apparatus with great skill to obtain bearings which established the position of the aircraft at various stages of the flight. In most harassing circumstances, Flying Officer Amey and Sergeant Lane displayed great courage, coolness and determination.

Ejected from the aircraft but died after developing pneumonia on the 31st December

Shortly later all baled out over Allied held territory, returning to RAF Little Straughton on the 27th DecemberSafe//Injured 28th April 1945DFC was awarded to Warrant Officer (WO) Anderson whilst with 582 Sqn. London Gazette 23rd February 1945. Citation: Distinguished Flying Cross. Warrant Officer Arnold Andreas Leslie ANDERSEN (Aus.426001), R.A.A.F., 582 Sqn. Distinguished Flying Medal. Aus. 424485 Flight Sergeant John Grylls WATSON, R.A.A.F., 582 Sqn. Warrant Officer Andersen and Flight Sergeant Watson were wireless operator and rear gunner respectively in an aircraft detailed to attack Cologne in December, 1944. When approaching the target the aircraft was hit by anti-aircraft fire and sustained some damage. On leaving the area, the bomber was engaged by ten fighters. In the face of persistent attacks, Flight Sergeant Watson displayed great coolness. His turret was not functioning properly and two of his guns were unserviceable. Nevertheless, he defended his aircraft with great resolution Eventually, his turret was hit by a cannon shell. The windscreen was shattered. The intercommunication system was smashed. The turret doors became firmly jammed and Flight Sergeant Watson was trapped. Undeterred, he continued to fire at the enemy as best he could. Meantime, Warrant Officer Andersen had seen his comrade's plight and went to render assistance. It was a dangerous task as the pilot was taking violent evading action and the fuselage had suffered considerable damage. Nevertheless he negotiated a safe passage to the rear turret and extricated his comrade after forcing the turret doors with an axe. Soon afterwards it became necessary to leave the crippled aircraft by parachute. Had Warrant Officer Andersen not been successful the rear gunner would have had no hope of escape. In most distressing circumstances these crew members displayed cool courage and great determination".
