BAZALGETTE, IAN WILLOUGHBY S/L(P) 11813 V.C. and D.F.C. – Royal Air Force. From Calgary, Alberta. Killed in Action Aug 4/44 age 25. #635 Squadron (Nos Ducimus Ceteri Secunter). Following is an extract from London Gazette of August 17, 1945 regarding the action where S/L Bazalgette was awarded the V.C. On 4th August, 1944, Squadron Leader Bazalgette was master bomber of a pathfinder squadron detailed to mark an important target at Trossy-St. Maximin for the main bomber force. When nearing the target his Lancaster came under heavy anti-aircraft fire. Both starboard engines were put out of action and serious fires broke out in the fuselage, and the starboard mainplane. The bomb aimer was badly wounded. As the deputy master bomber had already been shot down, the success of the attack depended on Squadron Leader Bazalgette, and this he knew. Despite appalling conditions in his burning aircraft, he pressed on gallantly to the target, marking and bombing it accurately. That the attack was successful was due to his magnificent effort. After the bombs had been dropped the Lancaster dived, practically out of control. By expert airmanship and great exertion Squadron Leader Bazalgette regained control. But the port inner engine then failed and the whole of the starboard mainplane became a mass of flames. Squadron Leader Bazalgette fought bravely to bring his aircraft and crew to safety. The mid-upper gunner was overcome by fumes. S/L Bazalgette then ordered those of his crew who were able to leave by parachute to do so. He remained at the controls and attempted the almost hopeless task of landing the crippled and blazing aircraft in a last effort to save the wounded bomb aimer and helpless gunner. With superb skill, and taking great care to avoid the small French Village of Senantes, he brought the aircraft down safely. Unfortunately, it then exploded and this gallant officer and his two comrades perished. Squadron Leader Pilot Bazalgette is buried in the Churchyard at Senantes, Oise, France.
