  1. This aircraft was initially damaged by Anti Aircraft gunfire and then subsequently shot down by Becker.

    ME854 did not collide with PD262. PD262 was also shot down by Becker but 8 minutes earlier at 2245.

    The Navigator was FSGT Ross Rennie RCAF.

    Home Airfield was RAF Elsham-Wolds
