Mustang Oude Tonge 41-6248 335th FS[QUOTE=leospitcon;12131]Sorry for my bad behaviour that was certainly noy my intention. Leospitcon (Leo <span style="background:yellow">Bakke</span>r)[/QUOTE] Well Leo, perhaps you could try a little bit harder to find out some things for yourself, instead of posting on quite a number of forums and try to find the information the easy way.... My two cents.... Rob, I agree with you that the JPAC is doing a good job by identifying the remains of possible MIA's. However, on the contrary you are willing me to believe, the JPAC is NOT active in searching for WWII MIA's and that is what is bothering the remaining relatives. For them it looks like they are forgotten because JPAC IS active in the Asia area. I heard last week that they are planning to start a JPAC office somewhere in Germany, I think that would be the start of a new beginning. They now only do a 'tour of duty' a couple of times a year in the European area. Considering the Merritt case, a man told me that Merritt is on land, he also told me that antoher man knew the exact place. However after contacting this second person, he told me he knew nothing about this case. I will go back to the first person this week and interview him why he is so sure that Merritt is in this area. Do you mean with 'WWII aerial photography' going to Wageningen or Meppel (or was it Assen?)to see if they have pictures of that certain area during the time of crash? Well, they are cheaper than Keele, but I'm still not in the situation that I can pay 35 euro for a single picture (you'll need more than one) and that is excluding the time that you have to pay while they are searching for that picture. Thanks for your reply again! ....Read More.SNAFU on 28th July 2008 09:04:22

Transcribed for the recordIn the course of transcribing wartime and immediate postwar citations I have kept texts for recommendations which ultimately were not approved. Nevertheless, the people involved had clearly made enough of a contribution that they were recommended, even if a gong did not materialize. Such information may still be of interest to persons consulting this site. Time does not permit me spelling out all the abbriviations of units, but I am sure that most reseachers will be looking by name rather than unit. Some of the following awards may indeed have been approved (for example, the AFC proposed for Major Charles Allen, USAAF), as well as other awards to non-British/Commonwealth nationals. The format is fairly straightforward - "BEM rec" means a recommendation for a British Empire Medal, "OBE rec" a submission for an OBE. This is an ungoing project, but if I wait until it is "finished" or "almost finished", none of it will appear.

F/O W. Russell RAAFJust to fill in a few gaps, the records I have show that the Dominion Monarch departed Sydney on 9th June 1942, arriving in Auckland on 12th June 1942. Would this tie in with an embarkation from "Sangate" on 17th June 1942? As a random late night thought, as Sandgate is closer to Brisbane, could Brisbane have been the port of embarkation? If so, the "Martin <span style="background:yellow">Bakke</span>", which left there on 17th June 1942, arriving in Key West (East Coast?) on 1st August may be a possibility.

F/O W. Russell RAAFThanks for the detail Col. Your information suggests that he was at the Embarkation Depot on 17th rather than Embarking for Canada, so perhaps the "Martin <span style="background:yellow">Bakke</span>" is incorrect. I have had another look at convoyweb (Departures 22nd June [plus / minus 5 days] and there were no departures from Brisbane on 23rd when his records show that he "departed for overseas service". The only other possible departure after 17th was on 26th June when the "Day Star" departed Brisbane, arriving in Los Angeles (16th July) and San Francisco (24th July). A couple of other thoughts: He may have embarked on one of the local convoys (PG2a or 3a) which left Brisbane on 18th and 25th respectively, disembarked at another Australian port before embarking a ship heading for Canada (Possibly leaving Brisbane 18th / Other Port 23rd) Alternatively (although I think it unlikely) he travelled overland to another embarkation port from the depot at Sandgate Any thoughts? Regards Pete ....Read More.PeteT on 22nd January 2014 10:30:58
F/O W. Russell RAAFThanks again Col. Based on both sets of information, do you have a view about which of the options in my previous post is the most likely? I think I am erring towards the use of the local convoy, with embarkation to Canada from another Australian port (but I am no expert, I just like the challenge of trying to pin down convoys / independents) I am assuming the Dominion Monarch and possibly the Martin <span style="background:yellow">Bakke</span> can be eliminated due to their departure times.

Caterpillar BadgeHello, My interest is the survival of the sgts W.J.Garnett and W.J. Morrison after the crash of their Wellinton AD 605 in the night of 2/3 july 1942 near Dirkshorn (Noord-Holland).

Caterpillar BadgeI was surprised to read that the badge of James Wesley Garnett was found by Adam. A question for me is: Was a badge attached to the parachute? The parachute of Morrison, who was landed in the garden of the local bank, was hidden by the banker in his garden under the ground, but the Germans did search the whole day in the village. To prevent reprisals the people has given the parachute at the end of that day - 3 july 1942 - to the Germans. The whole day the Germans had thought that a third parachutist was hidden in the village....
