Thanks for the information .I had heard something about the book "Missing Believed Killed" & that it was due to be published & I think the other book was reviewed in the Telegraph last month ?

I wonder if "Missing--" details MIA RAF members only ? My father was Australian RAAF but a member of both 104 RAF & 31 SAAF squadrons in Italy. MIA 12/10/44 whilst on a partisan supply drop mission.31 SAAF Liberator KH158 ,with 8 crew never returned to Celone, Foggia base.

I have ordered the book from an Amazon seller as it is a very emotive subject. Amazon sellers have other books, with the title "Missing Believed Killed" .One by Roy C Nesbit, partly concerns RAF sub aqua teams.
