    As a follow up to the above,

    An example of a corrected entry will show up as

    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
    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!
