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.

Comments1: Typest/Clerk for Maj Egan, Lt Col Kidd

COMMENTS & NOTES

MEMO 1:

Clerk Typest and musician.  Played Bass in "Century Bombers" along with Irv Waterbury.  I wanted to fly but I had a bad eye.  I felt ashamed to be a typest. We had a band called the Century Bombers.  Capt Williams was leader of the band, a good band too!

"We had two trumpets, three sax, a …….guitarist, I played bass and piano, a damn good drummer, a guitar who was always behind the beat, a guy who sang like Sinatra (Mike Landra)-the girls loved him"

Typed for Egan, then for Lt Col Kidd, etc at HQ.  I got busted for some reason but they gave me back my stirpes.  I went to london a lot and met lots of girls who loved to skate. I made lots of friends at the skating rink.  They turned the Royal Opera House into a Skating rink.  The girls were many, they wanted to tek me home with them but I had been warned about VD and stuff like that.  I was taught "Southern Baptist" to save myself for my wife if I ever got one.  I'm glad I did though.  I rode a bicycle most fo the time on the base. Col Kidd asked me one day to deliver a bag of mail over to the Camp (base) near us.  This was Horham, 3rd Air Div.  I checked out a jeep and took the bag of mail over there.  Our men had been taken over there until our Base was lengthen (believe this was late June 1944 when perimeter track and runways were being repaired…mpf 2002).
