    Hi
    I confess I am not familiar with the distinctions between KOAS and KIA, but would KOAS be appropriate for someone who was wounded on an Op , got back to his home Airfield (21 Sqn were based at Watton which is in the reporting area of Wayland,Norfolk) but died later the same day in Station Sick Qtrs or a local hospital?
    Regards
    Dick

    Hi Dick,

    it is good question. I was thinking about the same but was unable to find any official order how to distinct KIA a KOAS.

    I will be glad if anyone could provide us official definitions of such terms.

    At the present time there are used other abbreviations used for soldiers/airmen who died as the result of wounds:

    DOW - Died of Wounds
    or more specific
    DWRIA - died of wounds received in action

    Henk, hope you got the relayed message from Pel Temple about Harry Jagger. For the benefit of others who have been following this thread, Jagger WAS the Wop/Ag in Ogilvie's crew and, according to the 21 Sqdn ORB he was killed by AA fire which would put him in the "Killed in Action" category.
    Cheers,
    Bill.

    Sparrow, A/C 2nd Cl. A. W. L.
    and
    Veitch A/C 2nd Cl. J. G.
    and
    Wintrop A/C 1st Cl. G. W.
    all listed DOAS in Flight mag May 22nd.

    Not sure where the confusion was but may 8th Flight magazine lists:
    Sgt H Jagger 751860 in the KILLED IN ACTION (WHILE FLYING IN OPERATIONS AGAINST THE ENEMY).— section.
