WELLINGTON crashed in south FrenchHello, All that I can give is from Air Brit book LA100-LZ999. Wellington Mk. X LP180 - 311 FTU/ 3 OADU/ 40. Missing over Southern France, 10.5.44. BCL vol 5 does have BJ618 from 30 OTU lost this time (9th/10th) on a "Nickel" opCrashed at Selles (Eure) 6 km S from Pont-Auidemer, France. While Bomber Command War Diaries has for 9th /10th 1 OTU Wellington as lost. BCL vol 7 (OTUs) has crew of BJ618 THorn;Russell;Rennick;Harris;Stevenson and Smith.

61 Sqn ORB - LM454Good afternoon, I have been trawling through the 50 Sqn / 61 Sqn Roll of Honour. There are two names on the 61 Sqn roll that I don't have a circumstance for. Sgt James J Hanley and Sgt Henry S Slow are both listed as crew on Lancaster LM454, they are both remembered on the Runnymede Memorial as dying on 24 February 1944. Bomber Command Losses doesn't have a record. The Air Britain LA100-LZ999 records that LM454 caught fire returning from Augsburg on 24 Feb, and was SOC. Mason records similar. (Posting on the Lancaster forum and subsequent checking in BCL confirms that the aircraft was damaged when the Gee box caught fire, but was not SOC and carried on until being lost on 11/12 May 44) Therefore, I'm guessing that the fire caused two of the crew to bale out? One slight twist is that BCL and the BC War Diaries say that the Augsburg operation was 25/26 Feb... Can anyone check the 61 Sqn ORB and see what it says? Thanks Jim ....Read More.Jim Robinson on 28th February 2009 07:48:19

Wellington BomberHello, Charles Arthur Chandlerís commission as a Pilot Officer was published in the supplement to the London Gazette on 20th June 1944. The date of his commission was 2[SUP]nd[/SUP] May 1944 but apparently with seniority back dated to 25[SUP]th[/SUP] Aug 1943. At the time of his commission Charles held the rank of sergeant with his original service number being 1377209. This suggests he enlisted via Euston in 1940. At the time of his death he was serving with 76 OTU which was based at Aqir (also spelt Akir) in Israel. It was set up in October 1943 to train night bomber crews in the Middle East and was equipped with Wellingtons. It later also provided training for Liberator crews but that is not relevant in this case. Air Britain Royal Air Force Aircraft LA100-LZ999 states that Wellington X LN913 went missing on a night navigation exercise and was presumed to have ditched in the sea off Hifa on 30/07/44. Hope this is of some assistance. J ....Read More.norfolkjohn on 18th January 2017 05:27:06

Unconfirmed Wellington Loss - 26-6-1944[QUOTE=wwrsimon;141082]That's interesting Col, thank you. Wonder what A-B has for LN811? I've downloaded the 150 Sqn O.R.B. for May and June 1944*, and oddly there is no mention at all of LN811 during those two months. MF240 is recorded in the Form 541 on twelve Ops in May, and ten in June, the last of which was June 25/26th. Of those, McAneney and his crew flew MF240 three times in May, and five times in June. For June 25/26 the Form 540 records "...two of our crews F/O McAneney and F/O Shearer are missing all our other aircraft landed safely at base." The Form 541 has 415919 R E Shearer and crew in Wellington LN792 'Z' and McAneney and crew in MF240 'L'. The only entry on the Form 540 from June 30th is "Stand down today." *whoever wrote the O.R.B.s didn't have access to a typwriter, and the writing for the June ORB is terrible! The May one is written by someone else, and is much more legible. Regards Simon EDIT: As a matter of interest, I wondered about 1243785 Charles William HUM's Polar Medal, and came across this: [url]http://www.historicalrfa.org/rfa-william-scoresby-ships-details[/url][/QUOTE] Simon, Re: Wellington X LN811.
