RAF and Commonwealth Air Forces Roll of Honour - The Unaccounted Airmen Project

This is a database of all commonwealth airforces casualities in the Second World War. The primary data is taken from the CWGC site, but the data is enhanced by the AIR81 data from the National Archives and the Unaccounted Airmen and Airwomen Project that was initiated by the late Henk Welting, and being continued by the forum members. This tool helps you to easily search for a casualty based on partial name or number, exact date or year of death, provide the aircraft associated with the casualty or details. View the month by month coverage details.

The data continously feeds into some Graphical Charts : View some of the charts here
