    Hello Mojmir,

    I had seen the Forum link, thanks for offering it.
    The second link from Conscript Heroes Douglas Clifford Carter, however conflicts with the details you offer from Air78.
    Dennis Clifford Carter ?

    Still need details on Blake, and Cunningham..

    All for now,
    Many thanks
    Alex
