From Buzz Hope

As evening shadows fall, and day turns into night as the same as this night 70 years ago, 30th March 1944, a total of 937 sorties will be flown by Bomber Command. There will be 155 aircraft briefed to carry out diversionary and support operations while 782 aircraft would be despatched, to attack Nuremburg. (No.1 Group – 181 a/c, No.3 Group – 56 a/c, No.4 Group – 119 a/c, No.5 Group – 201, No.6 Group – 118 and No.8 Group – 107 a/c) Of the 782 aircraft dispatched, 634 will actually bomb (No.1 Group – 151 (83.43%) a/c, No.3 Group – 42 a/c (75%), No.4 Group – 81 a/c (68.07%), No.5 Group – 168 (83.58%), No.6 Group – 98 (83.05%) and No.8 Group – 94 a/c (87.85%). The attacking a/c dropped a total of 2.148 tons of bombs From the aircraft despatched there were 106 aircraft ‘Struck off Charge’:- 1 aircraft crashed on take-off, 2 aircraft returned so badly damaged were deemed beyond economical repair and 8 aircraft crashed on return with 95 aircraft failed to return, 10 the result of Flak, 76 by fighter, 1 aircraft shot down by friendly fire 3 by probable fighter attack, 2 by probable flak, 1 aircraft shot down by combined fighter and flak damage and 2 aircraft collided.

From the 106 aircraft ‘Struck off Charge’ from the nights operations there were 721 casualties: – 542 killed, 6 airmen injured, 161 airmen became Prisoners of War and 12 airmen evaded capture.

Of the 542 killed there were 372 from the Royal Air Force, 47 airmen from the Royal Australian Air Force, 109 airmen from the Royal Canadian Air Force, 10 airmen from the Royal New Zealand Air Force, 2 from the Royal Norwegian Air Force and 2 Belgium Army agents. The average age from the information available was 24½ years old.

The 542 airmen killed would be laid to rest as follows. 418 airmen in 6 Germen Cemeteries, 41 airmen in 3 Belgium Cemeteries, 13 airmen in 2 French Cemeteries, 26 airmen in 20 cemeteries around the British Isles and 40 airmen would have no known grave and are remembered on the Runnymede Memorial. The 2 Belgium agents and the 2 Royal Norwegian Air Force airmen killed ? Let us also remember those that waited in vain and families who later that day would receive that fateful telegram, ‘killed or missing from last nights operations’

The youngest airmen killed were 1804016 Sgt. J.P. Mackilligin RAFVR, an Air Gunner with No.106 Squadron (No.5 Group) and was in a Lancaster which was the 93rd aircraft down; possible fighter attack , aged 18. The oldest being 1329560 Sgt. R.H.
