    Default Ross's Air Force POW List - now a DB

    http://www.rafcommands.com/database/pows/index.php

    What does this offer? - allows you to see the aircraft type and serial number, clicking the serial will take you to other possible details around the aircraft, CWGC (Till mid 1941) or forum posts. Clicking on the Camp name will take you to the Campwise listing..

    Data ofcourse belongs to Ross. I just packaged it a different way.


    The oldsite is still available at http://www.rafcommands.com/old-site/air-force-pows/

    Hmm. Keep getting a blank page so the URL might have broken. Will investigate

    It is asking to tie with German interrogation reports and AIR 81 files!

    I suspect before we do anything that the Additional details in Ross's list needs to be fleshed out.

    12527 records in total

    2174 have dates
    2231 have units
    2152 have an aircraft serial associated with it.

    All the three above are pretty much coordinated - that is the roughly 2150x records ahve dates, units and aircraft numbers.. so that leaves 10300 records that do not have any of the three.

    0 have ranks
    0 have firstnames/fullnames

    I can put a google sheet out there if folks want to take a stab at it.
