    Hi Jon, can you look up

    Corporal James WRIGHT (542702) Burial/Commemoration Details : Sec. B. Row K.B. Grave 68. at Belfast (Milltown) Roman Catho, United Kingdom
    Death of Death 1944-03-04 Age : 24 years.

    A family Obit Notice in the Belfast Telegraph mentions "Killed on Air Operations" .. any aircraft loss from this date we can tie that one with?

    PS: Updated till this point 7200 records (5.88%) are still "Unaccounted".
