Re: Operation Jubilee aircrew list

Thanks for those. You're right about the losses, though I note that Sgt Liskutin was lucky return after the heavy damage suffered to his aircraft.


1. I've got FO Hartman credited with just a Do217 0/0/1; initially he had claimed an 'Me110' damaged, but this was changed to a Do217 after the camera film had been studied.

2. I believe that 'Sgt Kohart' could be a typo for Sgt Josef Kohout, any ideas?

Re: Operation Jubilee aircrew list
Merci beaucoup Stephane!

I'll add the corrections to the list.

Were the decorations you mentioned awarded for their part in Operation Jubilee or ones they received later during the war?


Stéphane Lehuédé 17th May 2007 16:53

Re: Operation Jubilee aircrew list
You're welcome :)

I believe they all received their decoration later during the war.

Re: Operation Jubilee aircrew list

Yes Liskutin´s EP559 received big damages when he forgot to watch own back during a fire on another Fw190. A time for his revenge occured some hours later ...


1. I've got FO Hartman credited with just a Do217 0/0/1; initially he had claimed an 'Me110' damaged, but this was changed to a Do217 after the camera film had been studied.
His CR mentions black Me 110, as well as the CR of No.310 Sqn.


. I believe that 'Sgt Kohart' could be a typo for Sgt Josef Kohout, any ideas?
You are right. Sgt Josef Kohout was a member of the 312 Sqn from 11/6/42 to 15/5/43.

Re: Operation Jubilee aircrew list
VoyTech, thanks for those I'll work my way through them.

Colin, thanks for that information. The ORB is correct he flew one sortie with the squadron during the day.

Re: Operation Jubilee aircrew list
Hi Steve

Back again with one more I believe it was S/Ldr E H P Wheller from 171Sqn.

I have really enjoyed perusing your list and will probably do some more! I am struck by at least two things.

The way you have arranged the list in order of rank gives a very powerful representation of the structure of the RAF, the shape of the pyramid in the RAF with nine pages of P/Offs and 12 pages of Sgts!

I am struck by the small number of Australians (17?). I wonder if it was simply the case that not so many Aussies had come through the pipeline by August 1942. However in my experience of poring over quite a few ORBs I have found that many ORBs do not clearly record where pilots were from the Commonwealth countries perhaps that may be a contributory factor.

You are going to have to write another book about Dieppe now.
