Looking for Bomber command COMBAT loss info, broken down by month. I poked around and found this.

However, it is not quite what I want as it states LOSS rate. This may included losses not attributable exclusively to combat. It is unclear on this point, I think.

Anybody got anything more precise? Fingers crossed.

You can also find the numbers you're after in Hastings' book, and in Middlebrook's (I believe Hastings credits Middlebrook for his list).

@ Low_Flyer - thanks for trying.
@ mhuxt - Not quite the format I was looking for, but I can make that work nicely with a little more work on my end.

Thanks guys!

By the way, there is an error on this page. June 1943 has the loss rate at 15%. If you do the math it really is 4.81%
