    (44-6-14-500)*
    http://airforcehistoryindex.org/ and also trying to hunt through Ancestry.com etc

    I see the ABMC website says they are launching a new site soon, maybe they can add search by date!! American records are so poorly presented compared to the CWGC.

    And after all that copying a pasting:

    MAXFIELD is remembered on this website - http://www.rafbeachunits.info/html/l..._maxfield.html. It reads:
    Leading Aircraftman James Maxfield (1305565) of 107 Beach Flight was No. 4 R.A.F. Beach Squadron’s only fatal casualty. He died in Normandy on 15th June 1944, aged 22.
    John Fenton saved a cutting from the Sunday Pictorial, dated 23rd July 1944.

    The full text of the caption reads:
    ‘Squadron Leader L. T. Taylor (correctly, L. A. Taylor) pays the last tribute to a comrade, L.A.C. Maxfield, who met the fate that might have overwhelmed them both. They were digging a trench on the beach-head when the squadron-leader was called away. A minute later Maxfield’s pick struck a mine - on the site where they had been living for fourteen days.

    Hi Ian

    If you drop an email to the nice folks at http://www.afhso.af.mil/main/contactus.asp

    and ask them for a scan of the report related to C-47 41-7793 and its loss.

    Aside from that, you also should contact the RAF to order a copy of his service record.
