    Hello

    For the Canadian and RCAF casualties, this pdf: https://www.bombercommandmuseumarchi...airwar1942.pdf seems to have details for them.

    Here are the first few:

    Flying Officer Ralph Ervin McLEOD (J/3522) - Blackburn Shark III 518, collided with Shark 549 when practicing air firing, crashed at Shattock Hill, B.C. Also killed was J. E. E. Cormier. Shark 549 landed safely.

    Squadron Leader William H. E. DRURY (C/1265) - Hampden TB.1 P1199 of 5 (C)O.T.U., collided with Beaufort L9932. See also: http://www.rafcommands.com/archive/05218.php

    Flying Officer Henry Oswald NICHOLL (C/2478) - died of natural causes in hospital in Edmonton

    Leading Aircraftman Robert Frederick James CROWHURST (1383688) - Harvard 2724 of 32 S.F.T.S.

    Aircraftman 2nd Class Emile DE LORME (R/94423) - died of natural causes in hospital.

    Flight Lieutenant James Lee MITCHELL (C/2572) - Hudson III V9125, lost of ferry flight. Also lost F/Sgt F. F. Garrity DFM and F/O K. P. O'Donnell (Aus.) [with a note quoting TSNGO which has Garrity lost on a 206 Sqn Sunderland].

    Aircraftman 1st Class Joseph Fitzgerald AGAR (921569) - Anson I W1722, collided with Anson N5358.

    I can post more, or is the link to the pdf sufficient? Also, comments and observations as to the pdf's accuracy welcome.

    Regards

    Simon

    I posted the link to the pdf just to see of anyone had seen it before, and had any comments about it as I'd not seen it mentioned on here previously.

    Regards

    Ok Simon, so I think that the PDF should be processed first (as the easier way) and only after it will make a sense to search for those who are not covered by the PDF. I have checked two other RCAF airmen who were next in order and the PDF has info 1:1 available in their RCAF service record.

    So the primary question now seems to me is who will be process the RCAF unaccounted airmen from the PDF into the DB?

    Kapitan Adam PRODAN (P/1052)

    natural cause of death
    He was quite old (born 1897) and according to reminiscences of one Czech navigator trainee with No. 10 AOS at the time he was told that Prodan has died "when in bed with a girl". What a nice death!
