|Sgt. A. Buckley 656154 P.o.W. Stirling N3705 August 15th 1942||Hello 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!

|POW ETO Google-sheet Missing data||Hello 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!
