Database Search

You are in the database section of the website.

Select a record category from RECORDS above. When you have selected a category, you will see search options for that category above the record list. 

Most fields require at least three characters. When you submit your query, the search engine will return all records that contain your search term.

Note that when searching for an aircraft serial number, you must enter the full serial number without the leading "4" and without a dash in the Aircraft SN search field. For example, you would enter 42-37772 as 237772.

The Personnel name field searches both last and first names, so if you enter the search term, "Russ", the search engine will return both Russell Abel and James Russell.

You narrow the search by entering more characters into the search field. For example, "Russ" returns many hits. "Russell" returns fewer hits. The same principle applies to all queries.

The POW and KIA categories are list only and are not searchable.

CREW NOTES:

The nose was sheared from 42-37913. The Germans could only positively identify five bodies, they listed a sixth as Unknown. This was probably either Lt. Donald J. Stuke or Lt. George E. Owens. The Germans recovered the body of Lt. Clarence W. Pullem with the crewmembers of 42-39830 at Aumale-Abancourt, and correctly identified him as having come from 42-37913's crew. The casualties were interred at Beauvais Memorial Cemetery with the exception of Lt. Pullem who was initially interred at Poix de la Somme. (paul west)
