Did You Know?
Lancaster (Serial FM159) is on display at the Bomber Command Museum of Canada. It is dedicated to the memory of Ian Bazalgette VC and bears the squadron marking “F2-T” - the aircraft he was flying whilst with No. 635 Squadron RAF at the time of his Victoria Cross action.
On the night of August 4th, 1944, Bazalgette's Lancaster (F2-T, Serial ND811) was hit by flak while approaching a V-1 Rocket site. Both starboard engines were knocked out and fires started. As the Master Bomber and Deputy Master Bomber were out of action it was up to Baz to mark the target for the remainder of the force. This he did but then the aircraft went into a violent dive. He regained control but soon the fire spread, and a third engine stopped running. He ordered four of his crew to parachute but chose to remain on board in an attempt to save the others who were injured and could not jump. Bazalgette managed to land the aircraft, however, it subsequently exploded and all aboard were killed. The surviving crew members evaded enemy soldiers and made their way to the Allied forces. For this action, Bazalgette was awarded the Victoria Cross.
