    Yes i get the message

    "Your current query terms Italy returns 2461 records, 2460 records (99.96%) have circumstances of death. 1 records (0.04%) do not have details."

    I think Jagan will have to run a direct query on Database to find why the mismatch appears

    Any help its in 8th Sept 1944 - I found it by elimination year, months then date ranges

    and its this record and its to do with the "V"

    "Lt Col Catton Of 19 SAAF Squadron led another two Beaufighters from 16 SAAF Squadron on a reconnaissance over the railway between Larissa and Salonika. All three aircraft were hit by Flak, Catton's observer being severely wounded, the pilot of another aircraft belly-landing, the third crashing when a tyre blew on
    landing due to Flak damage. Light Flak was encountered every two to four miles along the track."

    Is an unknown Beaufighter


    "Circumstances of Death: Lost in aircraft V left 1025 to recce of railway Larissa-Salonika, hit by Flak, observer killed, returned to base; Lt Col E.G.Catton unhurt "
