    As a follow up to the above,

    An example of a corrected entry will show up as

    https://www.rafcommands.com/database...php?uniq=K8985

    Shows up as :

    Citation Aircraft AIR81 Casualty File Description Link
    AIR81/10 Whitley K8985 Acting Flight Lieutenant W C G Cogman, Pilot Officer A W Mack, Sergeant G T Henry, Aircraftman 1st Class A Steel and Corporal S R Wood: prisoners of war; Whitley L8985 forced to land in Belgium, 9 September 1939. C14141989

    This preserves the original text of the AIR81 file description but shows the actual aircraft it was referring to.

    An uncorrected entry will show up as

    https://www.rafcommands.com/database...php?uniq=A1653
    Citation Aircraft AIR81 Casualty File Description Link
    AIR81/11097 A1653 Sergeant R R Hart (RAAF): injured; Flight Lieutenant K R Smith, Sergeant J E Walsh, Flying Officer N R Thompson, Sergeant E R Head: uninjured; enemy action off the coast of Malaya, Hudson A1653, 1 Squadron, 20 December 1941. C17058826

    Obviously the serial needs to be updated to A16-53 and type will be Hudson..

    there are a couple of thousand AIR81 entries that need correction!

    Jagan,

    Would there be a benefit - or is it possible - to format the corrected serial in bold and have a general note somewhere so that users would have a flag as to why there were two different serials?
