Sgt. A. Buckley 656154 P.o.W. Stirling N3705 August 15th 1942Hello everyone I'm trying to track down the first name of this Sergeant, who was the Navigator aboard N3705. I've been through Air 78 until I'm cross-eyed, and can't seem to find him. Any help gratefully received! Regards Simon ....Read More.wwrsimon on 2nd December 2018 02:39:19
POW ETO Google-sheet Missing dataHello All, There are, currently, 14072 Rows of data on the ETO POW experimental Google-sheet. The last 5-digit a/c s/n is Z9824. This is at Row 9171. I am quietly working my way down the (alphanumeric sorted s/n) sheet allocating “Type” of mission termination data. I am currently at Row 5063 – so, just over half-way! There is a significant number of errors in the original data (dictation/typo/poor OCR/and plain wrong!). I can correct many of these. There are a number of other Members working – from time to time – on this. Their help is tremendous! Jagan keeps an eye on the Google-sheet. There are some items of missing data (usually Forenames and/or Service Numbers) that my expertise/ability will not allow me to discover/correct! Thus my posting small batches of these ‘unknowns’ in the hope that, particularly, the Unit historians/researchers who may have access to sites/books/docs which I don’t have can produce the missing answers! The next lot is below! We are grateful for any corrections! EDWARDS ???? L H 0 1940-05-20 LAC RAF 25 OTU ???? AIR 81/1073 DC N2805 SHAW ???? R B 0 1940-09-13 Sgt RAF 40 Sqdn????
