626 Squadron Lost Aircraft

 

 

During RAF Wickenby's short active service 1080 lives were lost from the base. This sacrifice is commemorated by a memorial with the form of Icarus on an obelisk at the entrance to the airfield. Today the site is a private airfield used as an aviation school and is home to The RAF Wickenby Memorial Museum.It was the home of 12 Squadron and 626 Squadron of No 1 Group, RAF Bomber Command.

During hostilities, over 300 operations were flown from the airfield with 166 bombers reported missing, all but six being Lancasters. Another 30 aircraft were lost in operational crashes.

626 Squadron was formed in November 1943 with two flights of eight aircraft. 'A' Flight was originally 12 Squadron's 'C' Flight and 'B' Flight was made up from Lancasters arriving from factories and other units.Its first operation was to bomb the Western entrance to the Montcenis tunnel in the French Alps on the 10th of November 1943.

In total the number of sorties flown by 626 Squadron were 2728. Aircraft lost on operations 49 and non-operational losses 11. It bombed 187 targets and laid mines in 18 areas.

The 626 Squadron Roll of Honour

 

Remembering the 338 airmen who lost their lives while serving with 626 Squadron between November 1943 and August 1945

 

 

 

 

 

On the left is the Runnymede Memorial. Many of those who died were lost without trace and their graves are unknown. Those lost in operations from bases in the United Kingdom and North and Western Europe - more than 20,000 - are commemorated at the Air Forces Memorial, Runnymede. Centre is the memorial at RAF Wickenby to those lost from 12 and 626 Squadrons.

On the right is the Reichswald Forest War Cemetery. It was created after the Second World War when burials were brought in from all over western Germany and is the largest Commonwealth cemetery in the country. A number of 626 Squadron crews are buried there

 

For us to live - you had to die.

You lost your life and we lost you

What more could one be asked to do?
