Missing details on several Bomber Command losses, 7-8 September 1941Dear all, I am looking for any details on the crash location, time of loss and cause of loss of the following Bomber Command aicraft that failed to return from the 7-8 September 1941 Berlin raid. I do of course have the details as given in Bill Chorley's 1941 volume on Bomber Command losses: 12 Sqn Wellington W5598 12 Sqn Wellington Z8328 51 Sqn Whitley Z6744 58 Sqn Whitley Z6836 58 Sqn Whitley Z6947 149 Sqn Wellington X9705 214 Sqn Wellington R1784 405 Sqn Wellington W5521 Reason for asking is that I have four Whitleys claimed shot down by German night fighters, which I have not been able to match to actual Bomber Command losses. One of these claims may concern a Wellington loss: Lt. Rudolf Altendorf: 5 2./NJG3 Whitley N. Berlin 00.32 Lt. Ludolf Schmitz: 2 3./NJG1 Whitley 500 m. W. Neuenkirchen, NE Grevenbroich 00.47 Lt. Rudolf Altendorf: 6 2./NJG3 Whitley N. Berlin 01.00 Uffz. Wolfgang Brendel: 1 3./NJG3 Whitley Leissnitz 01.36 Cheers and thanks for any details Theo ....Read More.Theo Boiten on 4th October 2012 03:09:47
