    Thank you!

    Does anyone know, if there are investigation reports/files regarding the fate of ED 542 or missing RAF-planes in general (comparable to USAF Missing Air Crew Summary Reports)? Are those archived in the national archives in Kew?

    Hello Kai,

    MRES reports for crashes earlier in the war (late 1941) are available in AIR81 at Kew. But they move at a snail's pace so you'll be waiting a while for 1943.

    You mentioned KU reports. They are for American losses. KE Reports are for UK and Commonwealth losses. Not sure how many have survived but those that do are housed at the Air Historical Branch.

    In losses with RCAF or RAAF airmen you might find the MRES reports. When you have an all RAF crew things get more difficult.

    Regards,

    Dave

    Hello Dave,

    thank you very much indeed for the useful information.

    I went through the KU-Reports at the US national archive (NARA).

    By coincidence I discovered more than 50 KE-Reports, which are online available (National Archives Identifier: 6922310). Unfortunately, KE-report regarding Lancaster ED542, was not among these series.

    Kai
