Jim DALE, Royal Canadian Air Force And Department Of Transport Pilot (1923-2006)
As the young captain of a Lancaster bomber, he flew countless dangerous missions over Germany. Years later, he once wept at the thought of how many civilians he had probably killed
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to the Globe and Mail, Page S11
Ottawa -- Jim DALE loved flying so much that he volunteered to keep going for an extra eight missions during the height of the Allied air war against Germany.
A normal tour of operations for aircrew of the Royal Air Force's Bomber Command was 30 missions, but Mr. DALE, a Canadian pilot with the Royal Air Force's 166 Squadron, flew his mighty Lancaster bomber over the German Reich for a total of 38 hair-raising missions in all.
Starting on October 31, 1944, Mr. DALE climbed into the cockpit of his four-engine Lancaster and, night after night, headed out on some of the biggest raids of the Second World War. Cologne, Düsseldorf, Dortmund, Essen, Hanover: The list of German cities bombed by Mr. DALE and his crew resonate from the pages of his logbook more than 60 years later. What those terse entries don't mention is the gut-wrenching fear often experienced by aircrew as they struggled to survive.
Besides fighting off wily and persistent German night fighters, Mr. DALE and his fellow Lancaster captains also faced a storm of flak shells exploding near their vulnerable, soft-skinned aircraft. Bright moonlight was an unavoidable hazard that lit up the sky, making juicy targets of those bombers. German searchlights were also deadly, targeting Allied bombers by 'coning' them with several beams of high-powered light. Once coned, many bombers could not escape, making them an easy target for the Germans' vaunted 88-mm flak guns.
Despite losing close Friends, Mr. DALE kept doing his job, bombing a wide range of targets by flying some of Bomber Command's deepest penetrations into enemy territory. There was little opportunity to rest, except when bad weather washed out a mission.
Mr. DALE's daughter Ann thinks her father kept risking his life because he "loved the adventure, of being free in the air, of fighting for his country, and yet, he also knew fear. He didn't know the meaning of stress, as that word didn't exist then, but often, he was scared. He once told me it would be stupid not to have been afraid going on a bombing mission. It was what you lived with."
In November of 1944, Mr. DALE flew eight missions. For the next three months, he flew six missions a month. Beginning March 1, 1945, with the Germans making a ferocious final battle, he flew a mind-numbing 10 missions in 16 days.
"His last op was Nuremburg [on March 16] and he was petrified, as that was where Mother's first husband had been killed. It was also a night called 'bomber's moon' when the moon lit up the sky and made [them] more vulnerable to attack," Ms. DALE said.
Mr. DALE's unassuming heroism did not go unrewarded by the Royal Air Force. "For his devotion to duty, courage and magnificent operational spirit, [showing] a complete disregard for his own personal safety and a high degree of skill," he was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross on July 5, 1945.
"Throughout [his] attacks he has displayed a fine offensive spirit in action and has allowed no hazard to deter him from his purpose. Several of the sorties in which he has been engaged have involved a flight of nine or 10 hours and his qualities of endurance and tenacity have been manifest to his crew, to whom his conduct has been a continuous source of inspiration."
Jim DALE joined the Royal Canadian Air Force on April 20, 1942. After training at various British Commonwealth Air Training Plan stations across Canada, he graduated as a sergeant pilot on May 14, 1943. Commissioned as an officer the next year, he joined 166 Squadron in October, 1944. Over all, about 25 per cent of Bomber Command aircrew were Canadian. One of its sub-units, No. 6 (Royal Canadian Air Force) Group, was made up of 15 Canadian bomber squadrons flying Wellington and Lancaster bombers.
Dubbed "Tail-up Dale" because he liked to take off with his Lancaster tail in the air, Mr. DALE was known as a devil-may-care character who enjoyed annoying stuffy Royal Air Force officers obsessed in maintaining military decorum, his daughter said. "Always a daredevil, he had little respect for authority unless it was earned, qualities that got him into a lot of trouble over his career, but which made him an outstanding pilot able to fly without ever losing a crew member. He did not hesitate to speak his mind. Political acumen and diplomacy were not his strong suit."
After being demobilized in March of 1946, Mr. DALE decided he loved flying too much too remain a civilian and rejoined eight months later only to find the Royal Canadian Air Force was being reorganized on a tiny peacetime scale. He had to serve two years as an airman before he regained his commission in 1948.
Two years flying C-47 Dakotas with 414 Squadron out of Royal Canadian Air Force Station Rockcliffe, in Ottawa, followed before Mr. DALE was posted to Royal Canadian Air Force Station Centralia, Ontario, as a flying instructor. Training a new generation of postwar pilots, Mr. DALE -- by then a flight lieutenant -- proved an inspiration to the young fliers. "The saying in Centralia [was], 'Even when birds won't fly, Dale will," Ms. DALE said.
In 1954, after 2,477 hours in the air in peace and war, Mr. DALE retired from the air force for the second time and joined the Department of Transport as a pilot. Over the next 25 years, he did a variety of jobs with Department of Transport, including investigating aircraft crashes and flying government V.I.P.s. His passengers included Prince Philip and Pierre Elliot Trudeau, who apologized when he was late.
Bill BOONE of Ottawa, now retired from Department of Transport as a chief flight dispatcher, remembers Mr. DALE with great affection. "He was one of the last great characters in aviation before it became very serious and regimented. He liked to fly by the seat of his pants, not always observing the rules. The rules were for others." Despite that, Mr. DALE is credited with contributed greatly to safety standards during his Department of Transport years.
Characterized as a man's man who liked sports and hunting, Mr. DALE was typical of his generation because he kept his feelings hidden, Ms. DALE said. He was happiest while flying. "It was as if in the air, he became everything, the real person, whereas on the ground, he had trouble, people didn't understand him. Pilots have to have so much maturity since they're responsible for people's lives, that on the ground they party hard and don't always have common sense about people and emotions. And yet, he had extreme sensitivity. Once he cried after watching a documentary on the war. He had been on that bombing raid and was acutely aware of how many people he had killed."
Milton Clarence James DALE was born on December 10, 1923, in Ottawa. He died of a bladder infection on March 5, 2006, in Ottawa. He was 82. He leaves his wife Catherine, daughters Ann, Elaine and Adrienne, son James, sisters Elaine and Helen, and brother Ashton.
