    I didn't realise JAPAN had a couple of " poorly accounted Airmen " so :

    Hugh Morrison 532230 attached to HQ BC Air Japan, died in Boair Hospital, Iwankuni, of toxamemia following an operation for a pelvic abscess


    If anyone spots any other such omissions from FULLY accounted countries, could you please point them out
