CWGC ErrorsA recent publication of an article about the grave of an Indian Airman in Belgium was published on my site [URL="http://www.bharat-rakshak.com/IAF/history/ww2/1396-fallen-airmen-in-france-and-belgium-plt-offr-rn-dastur-and-fg-offr-rc-datta.html#gsc.tab=0"]http://www.bharat-rakshak.com/IAF/history/ww2/1396-fallen-airmen-in-france-and-belgium-plt-offr-rn-dastur-and-fg-offr-rc-datta.html[/URL] The airman in question [URL="http://www.rafcommands.com/database/wardead/details.php?qnum=66570"]Flying Officer Ramesh Chandra DATTA (130517) [/URL] lost in Lancaster III ED923 Date of Crash: 09 Jul 43 97 Sqdn This put me in touch with his family in UK, and they pointed out his correct name was Ramesh Chandra [B]DUTTA [/B]The last name is verified via multiple Gazette entries 1.

A copy of his original RAF Service Record, GAzette Entries and finally contact directly from DUTTA's son helped seal the case.
