    Corrected about 264 serials in the CWGC DB that were returning 'unknown type' usually narrowed down to transposed numbers or letters.


    These are out of a total of 99,682 records tied to aircraft serials - so 1% rate in bad records.

    There are still about 960 entries that do not resolve to identified aircrafts or types..

    148 are simply "Unidentified Aircraft".. Others serials not known.
    106 Unidentified Spitfire serials
    100 records for Hurricanes
    87 Beaufighter entries
    37 records for Mosquitos
    37 Liberator
    24 Kittyhawk/Tomahawk
    27 Dakota
    27 Baltimore

    and so on

    Default Hurricane KZ398 two names in database

    Gents:

    In the database you have two names against this Hurricane which was destroyed at Shalloch on Minnoch Scotland 13/9/1943, causing the death of 64941 Sanders CR. I have seen the death certificate in respect of this event and Sanders is correct.

    The other name against this aircraft in the database is 533561 Mather SM who died 17/10/1943. He should correctly be associated with the loss of Oxford X6742 that crashed at Croydon on the said date.

    regards

    Default Database entry for Spitfire R6807

    Jagan

    The above entry contains data for two other aircraft besides the Spitfire, all listed as R6807.

    The Oxford serial should read P6807 and the Hurricane serial V6807.

    regards

    Default Halifax DT578 in database, two crews listed?

    Jagan

    The entry for this aircraft has two crews associated with it. For this a/c I have
    Chadwick S
    Robinson FJ
    Robson FW
    Martin N
    Stabler E
    Vincent K
    Aitken DP.

    Some of the others I suspect should be attached to the record for LW 319 on 23rd or JB926 on 24th,
    I am not able to sort this out myself as I do not have the Chorley books now.

    regards

    DaveW
