42475 S/l E.r.m.appleton.David, Understand your need for brevity, but the events of 26/27-4-1943, can be strung out a little. A. The Ruhr - Duisberg - was hit again on 26 April (1943), but of the ten squadron aircraft detailed, one failed to take off (pilot taken ill) and two aborted. Stirling BF517 (JN-O), piloted by Pilot Officer P.J.O.Buck (NZ), carrying a second pilot for experience, was severely mauled. They were attacked by an unseen night fighter, mortally wounding the rear gunner and slightly injuring two others. Buck began to lose height, having lost an engine, so ordered everything that could be jettisoned to be so. He was thus able to retain sufficient height to get them home for a crash landing at Newmarket. The famous photograph (see:bottom,p.81), taken of the tail of this Stirling clearly shows the damage inflicted. Peter Buck was awarded the DFC and his navigator, Pilot Officer John Symons RCAF, one of the wounded, also won the DFC for staying at his post to navigate them home, despite his injuries. B. Appendix G: Operational aircraft which either crashed in the United Kingdom or Returned with Dead or Injured Aircrew aboard 1940-1945. Date: 26 April 1943 Stirling I BF517 (JN-O) Target: Duisburg Attacked by night fighter; crash landed at base. Capt: PO Buck, P.J. (NZ) 2/pilot: FL Appleton, E.R.M. Nav: FO Minnis, A.
