    Default Missing B-24 liberator 1944-07-07

    Hi!

    I need some help with to locate a B-24 Liberator and crew from 15th AAF, 479th BG, 759th BS
    on 7 July 1944,the bomber was ditched in the Adriatic Sea on return from Mission from Odertal.
    7 airmen was rescued but i couldn't find anything yet on the U.S. 1st & 7th Emergency Rescue Squadron.
    2 airmen went missing:
    2 Lt Elmer Watson Jr, O-689495
    Andrew M Carlin SSGT 33455505

    I wonder if any of the RAF 252, 253 Air-Sea Rescue Unit (ASRU) might been involved? or any else?

    Regards
    Johan

    Hi JohanSWE,

    Regarding Watson, Fold3.com says he was with 459 BG(H) 759 BS, and commemorated on the Tablets of the Missing at Nettuno, Sicily. USAAFdata.com lists him but does not give the aircraft's serial number.
