    Default Unaccounted Airpersons Threads

    Excuse the silly PC thread title.

    people will be glad to hear that I have completed the review of Henk's Unaccounted airmen/women theads up to 20th September 1941. From that date onwards we were using the Service Aviation pages that I compiled to reduce the search scope.

    I'll try continue the review from 20th Sep 1941 onwards but I'm hoping we completed each of those dates using the same procedures we do now and thus there will be less blanket messaging from myself. Sorry for pushing any messages off the forum over last few weeks/months.

    I did notice there were some 1940 threads I missed from this..!! I'll back feed them in to this and try to add llinks from the old forum.

    Here is a quick index page of the thread links I created from my excel sheet,
    http://www.skynet.ie/~dan/war/henksthreads.html

    You may as well ignore my comments as they make sense only to me!! And even then thats a stretch. Basically if there is an outstanding piece of information I should have mentioned it in the comments column. The minimum info I hoped Henk would get in each of these were:
    A status from RAF Casualty lists: i.e. KOAS or DOAS or Died of Wounds..... etc

    A death registration district. We are missing Northern Ireland data and Isle of Man, Ireland (Eire) data can now be obtained.

    Girlfriend returns from 3 week business trip next week so work rate will fall ;-) haha.

    Threads are now updated to 13 August 1943 in the spread sheet.

    http://www.skynet.ie/~dan/war/henksthreads.html

    Hopefully the links all work. Can't beleive I started this in 2009.
    Work rate has fallen and I just got engaged so I guess work rate will dry up now!!

    Henk, others can you try out the links.

    Dennis,

    Think there's a slight error in your link; it should be

    http://www.skynet.ie/~dan/war/henksthreads.html (the 'l' at the end was missing).

    Brian

    Yes, apologies Dennis, please accept my sincere congratulations as well.

    Congratulations Dennis to both of you. Do hope we won't miss you more often on the board although your fiancée will have her right on your leisure time as well !
    I could open all "henksthreads" up to 430813 and the three of 1944.
    Regards,
    Henk.

    Henks thread list is updated to the last one he started which was 23 September 1943

    http://www.skynet.ie/~dan/war/henksthreads.html

    Do we have the wherewithal to continue this little project ourselves? At a very basic level I'd like to continue looking at RAF men with no unit listed by CWGC at a bare minimum, looking also at the DOAS and KOAS lists in Flight magazine. I can't afford to go out and buy copies of all the Chorleys, Franks, Cummins, et all I would be open to geting the AB crash listing magazien though.

    Onwards!

    For the reasons I have outlined before I will not allow the forum to replace "Lost Bombers" et al as a transcriber host for copyright material.

    Henk was meticulous in only posting questions where he was unable to glean the information from other sources.

    I think that the best way would be for the custodians of Henk's files to continue posting "Unaccounted Airmen" threads and for a group to add the edited Air Britain possibles when the lists are released.

    Very tiring having to defend oneself on here all the time nowadays Ross, I meant that I'm not going out buying them so that I can avoid mentioning them. I've enough gumption to figure out if seven men from a BC crew are buried in Reichwald they are (most likely) in BC losses and don't need to be mentioned.

    I posted on a good few hundred of those threads, I've a fair good idea of what the purpose of them was.

    My suggestion is not welcome I take it then.
