    Default George F. Shirts

    Hello,

    Some info reached me about an aviator George F. Shirts who was found dead on 2 February 1945 near Beugen (a small village in SE Holland). Seems that his parachute didn't deploy.

    Do not know if he was British/Commonwealth of American..

    Thanks for you help !

    Kindest regards,
    Hans

    Hi Alain,

    Could be him. Seems that this guy was an American. Do you have any further info on this man (member of USAAF, who the crew was he made part off etc.)

    Thanks Alain,
    KR,

    Hans,

    The name George F. Shirts shows up on www.accident-report.com, that has a list of USAAF airmen involved in an accident.
    You may want to take your question to a forum that deals with the USAAF in WW II, for instance www.armyairforces.com

    Unfortunately George F. Shirts (even with the serial number Alain mentioned) doesn't appear in the enlistment records of the US National Archives.

    Regards,

    Alain,

    Indeed, but neither George F. Shirts nor the serial number can be found on the aad.archives.gov website.
    Perhaps his file was among a missing series.

    Groet,

    Leendert
