    Catalina 02915 11 Jan 1945, North Carolina

    I noticed this aircraft loss, Catalina 02915 which crashed coming out of Elizabeth City, North Carolina on 11 January 1945 (12th in the book). The appendix in Ocean Bridge lists the crew as Peter Harry Nataros, and he is listed on CWGC website and four Russian airmen, who are not named. Death certs [certificates] for North Carolina and the names of the Russians were:

    Lieutenant Afanasie Borodin

    H N Chikov

    Captain W M Levin

    Senior Lieutenant D M Medvedev

    Deaths of all five are registered at Nixonton, Pasquotank County. (All deaths dated 11th January) All the Russians are listed as being 'removed' under the field 'buried, cremated, removed'. I wonder is there a Russian cemetery they were buried in somewhere?
