    Default Re: The Unaccounted Project - Final Stretch Updates by Jon Heyworth

    I agree that the quality of the current entries needs improvement/fixing.

    quick dirty queries

    records with "hospital" in the field (And not tied to aircraft serial) - 3209
    natural causes - 337
    illness -471
    discharge (post discharge death) - 381


    I personally have the following to fix.

    Aircraft related entries that do not specify the aircraft name/type (i.e wrong serial, unknown serial) - 685
    Non aircraft related entries that do not have "Detail" - but are linked to an external site or post - 3745

    I can probably help with missing aircraft serials to casualties at some point . If you can send me a copy of the people in the RAF with only “ natural causes “ it would be super helpful to have by my elbow
