Does our database use some sort of convention when dealing with night losses?
AE433 was lost on "the night of" 8/9 Nov 41, as listed in the relevant edition of Bomber Command Losses.
Does the database always us the second date? It says the loss was on 9 Nov 41:

However, being winter, AE433 took off at 1719, and was lost that evening, ie 8 Nov 41.
The TNA file linked to the database says they failed to return on 8 Nov 41: http://www.rafcommands.com/database/...php?uniq=AE433
The POW database also goes for 8 Nov 41 as their date of capture
