    Default Re: CWGC WW2 Air Forces Database (110000+ Accounted - 90% Done!)

    Apologies for the amateur question, but how can I report/amend an error in the database?

    The crew of Wellington Mk IV Z1218 are erroneously listed under "Z6298?" : http://www.rafcommands.com/database/...hp?uniq=Z6298?

    Elsewhere the database has an entry for Z1218 with the correct AIR81 file merged in: http://www.rafcommands.com/database/...php?uniq=Z1218

    The 2nd link also has the incorrect date of crash by 1 day, the aircraft crashed on 20/10/1941 rather than the 21/10/1941.

    Apologies if I've missed an obvious button or function to suggest corrections

    Should the RAF dead on the Maidenhead Register and the ATC cadets be included ?

    There have been other 'evil' suggestions as well :-) .

    Fleet Air Arm casualties
    The Polish Memorial register,
    The Hellenic Air Force casualties
    RAF Deaths 1919-1939

    And I suspect any other foreign country subjects that flew in UK aircraft with a UK serial but are not show in CWGC ... ...

    Id agree wholeheartedly that what you described are outside the RAF WW2 qualifying period the chaps on the Maidenhead register and ATC cadets ? Im not so sure

    Jagan,

    I think a Polish and Czech airmen memorial would be excellent and I would be happy to help out!

    boy, have i got a project for you :).. if you email me at jaganpvsAThotmailDOTcom, i can share an excel of the data i have

    The excel has 2174 Polish Names, airmen who died - which came from Kryzystek's List - https://listakrzystka.pl/en/ or https://listakrzystka.pl/?download=lista-krzystka-pdf

    Some work has been done on it - in three categories

    1042 have an aircraft serial associated with it
    146 have some cause of death.
    959 do not have a cause of death.

    Now this sheet has to be reconciled with the current CWGC Data that has 1462 records (with 13 unaccounted)

    That would leave about 712 names that will have to be sorted through and added to the current CWGC Database . Now this 712 records could well be spread throughout the three categories in the excel. So the actual research needed could be on a smaller number...

    The data in Krysystek;s list can be used to enrich the current CWGC Data - (service numbers, name corrections etc) so that is a bit of work)..


    PS: Thanks for your inputs on other records till date.

    Hello Javan,
    Oddly a couple of weeks ago I started to look at the Polish airmen . So far, not counting those lost in France before the Battle of Britain. The earliest Polish airman to loose his life in the UK in WW2 was on the 29 the July, 1940. Hurricane L1714, 6 OTU, Kasimierz OLEWINSKI, P/76753.
    In 1940 so far I found only 21. Only one died from from illness, Blood poisoning while in Hospital.
