    Default Lancaster ND714

    Lancaster ND714 was lost on a mission to Etampes in N. France on 9/10 June 1944.
    Apparently in service with No 582 Squadron at that time.
    It seems not many further details are known about crew and/or crash location, but I'm sure someone can help us out here...

    Any info welcome, thanks.

    Of the more than 100 deaths recorded on those two days there were none ascribed to 582 squadron.

    Chorley has JB714 of 49 Sqn lost this night in a raid on Etampes.

    Air-Britain serials has both JB714 (49 Sqn) and ND714 (582 Sqn) as lost on the raid. Fate of ND714 incorrectly recorded in A-B?

    Thanks for the replies so far. Fate of ND714 turns out to be rather mysterious...

    No sign of a loss of a Lancaster crew on cwgc for 12 squadron 15th or 16th June 1944. One loss of a 582 Squadron crew on 16/6/44 buried in Ste. Catherine communal cemetery. I can give you names of crew if that helps.

    Default ND502 according to Chorley

    hello,

    Howard, you make this case even darker ! CHORLEY has the plane which crashed in Ste Catherine, a suburb of Arras in France as ND502, but indeed a plane belonging to No. 582 Squadron. 6 members of the crew are buried in Ste Catherine, wireless operator F/Sgt Robert F. BOOTS was the only survivor and evaded capture.

    Default Lancaster ND714

    Hello,

    I have a link to 109/582 Squadron losses. Few details about aircraft serial numbers, but a list
    of deceased airmen, circumstances of loss, place of burials.

    On the 9th June 44 there were losses to 44 and 49 squadrons (14 airmen buried at Morigny-Champigny including two Australians with no squadron identified). On the 10th June 44 a further loss is recorded against 49 squadron - crew buried at Bayeux. It looks like a case of quickly scratched together planes and crews with the paper-work never quite catching up.

    Default Etampes 9/10 June 1944

    It seems that Bomber Command lost 6 out of 108 Lancasters dispatched to Etampes on 9/10 June 1944.

    I've identified JB714, ME678, ND533, ND714 (?), ND764, NN697 and PB121, or seven aircraft.

    If ND714 makes the one too many, then perhaps a mix up with either JB714 or a misinterpretation for ND764....

    In all cases: fate of the "real" ND714 stays open.

    Thanks for all help so far.

    Regards,

    Leendert
