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.

Casualty Report from 1944-09-11

MACR: 99929 AIRCRAFT: 43-37517
TARGET: Ruhland, Germany TYPE: B-17G
BASE: Thorpe Abbotts, Norfolk, England NAME: Heaven Can Wait
SQUADRON: 418th BS - 100th BG(H) AIRCRAFT CODE: LD-?
CRASH:

Returned to Thorpe Abbotts with Casualty aboard. S/Sgt Emerson was killed September 11th, 1944 during fighter attacks. This information was received by James R. Brown (100th Senior Historian and a 100th veteran) from the BTG on the crew, Donald J. Farley in 1983. The ABMC Registers show that Emerson died September 30th, 1944 from his wounds of September 11th, 1944. This seems to be correct because Emerson was buried beside PFC Sheppard of the 351st who died  September 28th, 1944. It is accepted that he succumbed from wounds received September 11th, 1944 at Ruhland, Germany. (paul west)
