Our Website’s CWGC Database is enhanced a bit more.. Now in the search results, the Surname is a hyper link – and clicking it will take you to an individual casualty page that will have additional details – eg – a search of the Gazette, and even a rough search of the forum for additional posts..
An example page http://www.rafcommands.com/database/…php?qnum=33508 (J B NICOLSON VC)
- The individual page extracts the full record from the CWGC Database
- A link to the CWGC Page is included
- A Google Search Link is provided – it will be enhanced to provide Optional Search terms
- Link to an AIR81 record if one exists.
- Related Aircraft Crash/Loss record from the Losses Database
- For Officers – entries in he London Gazette are displayed.
- Finally a rough search is done across all the forum posts and where ever the name appears the results are displayed. This feature is not an exact science, but 80% of the time, the relevant posts are displayed.
With this feature approximately 124000+ webpages have been addeed to the site.
Go ahead – Query our DB at Royal Air Force and Commonwealth Air Forces War Dead database to find out how this works.
