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.

CAPT SMITH WAS A GROUP COMMAND PILOT FROM JUNE 1944 UNTIL COMPLETION OF TOUR.  He left the Crew after the June 25th Maquis Supply drop and the crew flew three missions with Lt G.W. Clark (original CP with Lt Tiahrt Crew) as pilot before Lt Wesley Carlton took over the Crew.  2nd Lt Hertz shows up in records as flying as the Navigator on this Crew but  left the crew after the July 8, 1944 Clamecy-Joigny mission to become a Pathfinder Bombardier (Lead Crew) with the 100th Bomb Group and the 95th Bomb Group. Capt. Smith became 350th Bomb Squadron Operations Officer in Sept. 1944.

The following is quoted from a letter written by E.F.Neu dated 23 July 1945…pw

"……..we were flying in the low squadron numbering twelve aircraft of which 11 were shot down. Our ship was badly hit and on fire.  Lt Carlton, who was flying in the right seat suffered wounds on the right side of his face and head. Lt. Carlton had his chute fastened to his harness the last time I saw him. While I was trying to move the Engineer's (Bagdasian) body from the escape hatch the ship exploded and I came to on the ground. Due to the fire in the bomb bay no one from the front of the ship could go to the rear, also the inter phone was shot out so no communications in the ship was possible.

Lt. Carlton's wounds seemed to be serious from the way he was bleeding. S/Sgt Schaefer and Watrous were in the rear of the ship and due to fire and no inter phone we could not communicate with them, although they were ordered by Lt. Carlton and myself to leave the ship before out inter phone was shot out."

Eyewitness Report: " At 0850 hours near 5043N-0802E,A/C #555 nosed down twice
and the group followed.Then the wheels were lowered and fire was seen in the
radio room. Looked as if it might be a flare fire. The A/C peeled off to the
right.A small explosion was seen in the right wing between #3 engine and the
fuselage. Ono man bailed out before the A/C left the formation. The others
followed. Nine chutes were seen to open and the tenth had not opened when the man
disappoared into the undercast. The fire in the A/C appeared to be out when it
plunged into the undercast flying steadily under AFCE control."

Diary compliments of Lucy Hughes (11/30/2004):
I have come into possession of a diary written by someone from this crew (John E. David crew), but frustratingly there is no name. It is, however, a fascinating record of all the crew's missions until they went down on 3rd Sep '44. Here's the first part just to see if anyone recognises any names. . . 

Mike Faley observation (12/1/2004):
There is only ONE choice for the writer of this log based on the excerpt you posted. Based on the loans owed and the fact the diary ends after 31 missions, it really comes down to  S/SGT FRANK BARILI, JR TTE . The reason for this deduction is that the opening of the diary has them going to the Walsh for gunnery practice, that would eliminate the officers. That leaves the enlisted men and based on process of elimination from the loans, that leaves S/Sgt Barili. 

Left Camp Kilmer, New Brunswick, New Jersey, April 22 1944. Boarded that date. 
Sailed from New York N. Y. April 23 1944 on the British Merchantman “Arawa” 14. 000 tons. 
Docked on May 6 1944 at Liverpool, England. 
First Base in England; Nelson Hall, about 3 miles from Stone, about 40 miles South East of Liverpool. Building look as if they were formerly used to house women war workers: and are fairly new. 
Left Nelson Hall 5-12-44 went to gunnery school at the “Wash” near Snettisham Eng. Lived in tents. Left gunnery school 5. 27. 44. 
Came to the 100 bomb group the 350 bomb squadron. 
Base is about 18 miles SSW of Norwich Eng. 
Made my first mission on June 2 1944. Bombed coastal guns in Pas de Calais area just north of Boulougn (sic. ). It was the milk run of all milk runs. Flak was seen a long way off. 
ON JULY 26 WE GOT A SEVEN DAY FLAK LEAVE. 
Went to the rest home which was three miles east of Worcester. Its name was Spetchley Park. It was a beautiful old home build (sic) in the middle of the 19th Century. Lot of pictures and a hugh (sic) library, also had a suit of armour valued at more than £400. Met the very nicest bunch of Red Cross girls that I’ve ever met. Their names were Alice Hanly (?), Joyce Palmer, Martha Brush, Mikey McKee and Muscles (?) (Marge). 
The C. O. was Major Smith. Adj was 2LT Evans. The medical Officer was a swell fellow from Houston Tex. I shot skeet, played tennis, volleyball, baseball, fished and went horseback riding. Breakfast was from 8. 00 to 10. 00. Dinner was at 13. 00, supper was at 19. 30. Had afternoon tea at 16. 00 and a snack at 23. 00 (?). Had the best time I’ve had in two years. Leaving was like leaving home.

A/C #42-97924 "PARTY TONIGHT"   MACR # 8843, Microfiche # 3248

EYEWITNESS: "A/C #924 aborted at 0843 hours with #2 engine on fire At 0846
 hours the plane began its turn back,losing altitude fast and two men bailed out.
 At 0848 hours, three more men bailed out.  At 0852 hours, the A/C hit the water
 and exploded."

 Those rescued believed they were in the water about an hour before being picked
 up by Britlsh sea craft.

When this crew joined the 100th on 26/5/44, Lt Edward J.Mikol  was the bombardier,
Sgt.Clarence E.Wood the ball turret gunner, and Sgt.Frank E.Yates a waist Gunner.
On this last mission the A/C went down in the North sea a, according to the Sqdn.
History, and only Goethel, Fong and Hendrichson were rescued.

T.N.H.I.S.G. p.129 :  Apparently the A/C had mechanical problems and on way
to target David warned the crew to Jump.  Immediately the A/C plunged and
only three men got out.   "I don't know exactly what happened,"  Goethel sald
later.  "We got out of the ship somehow and I was falling end over end. I pulled
at the rip cord on the chute but it wouldn't work. Then I tore open the flaps
with my hands and the chute finally came out.  I wasn't very high off the water
then.  All three of us fell into the channel about the same place though as the tlme
went on we drifted farther and farther apart. We didn't have any dlnghy and so
it was up to us to keep afloat as best we could. . .  . . . ."
As the three of them floated in the water,  a British destroyer came along slde and 
scooped first one and then another.  They had been in the sea about 1.5 hours
but recovered and came back to the base from Portsmouth by train.

 S/Sgt W.R. Klein               BTG   NOC  Replaced on crew by Radar Operator in late October 44 when this became a lead crew,  
 S/Sgt Thomas J.Dressel      WG   WIA (Wounded 25/8/44 POLITZ & month in hospital)
 S/Sgt Robert E.Kauffman    TG   NOC ( Flew 21 missions on crew of A.D.Elbel, last one on 8/8/44,  then in spare gunners pool , see below)

350th Sqdn. Crew appears as above on Roster of 25/8/44 target: (POLITZ) as Crew #29. Thls was probably a "pick up" crew. ( this information is suspect concerning this crew, likely they flew together very little, perhaps only once..jb).  Lt Spurgeon had a lead Crew and the actual make up is listed below. It is know that they were leading on Nov 2, 1944 to Merseburg with Col Sammy Barr as Command Pilot.  

Other Members who flew on this Crew
Lt R.A Nesline-Nav (replaced Lt Larson on Lt Daniels Crew) Flew as NAV on  first mission of Spurgeon Crew 8/8/44
Lt J.D. Goethel-Bom (from Lt David Crew)                        Flew as BOM on first mission of Spurgeon Crew 8/8/44 

Lt Spurgeon took over "JIMB0" A/C 44-8226 LN-B in November 1944 and he selected the name. It was a nickname for his Stateside Wife.  Jimbo was painted on the left hand side of the aircraft.  On the cowlings of No 3 & 4 engines could be seen the names "Kay" and "Alice" probably put on by the ground crew.    

See S.D.C. p.33 & 95 "JIMB0" A/C 44-8226 LN-B  This was a Pathfinder aircraft originally assigned to the 95th Bomb Group (13th CBW HQ for Pathfinder Crews and Aircraft in Summer and early fall 1944) in October 1944. The practice during this time was to fly Pathfinder A/C from Horham to the surrounding airdromes to lead the 3rd Air Division Bomb Groups.   In late October this practice ceased and Pathfinders were assigned to each Bomb Group and both Crews and planes were maintained at their own bases.

THIS WAS THE MAKE-UP OF  LT PAUL SPURGEON'S LEAD CREW.

LT PAUL SPURGEON               P       CPT 28 JAN 45 DUISBURG
LT C.G. SHAREMET                CP     CPT 28 JAN 45 DUISBURG ?
LT JOHN V. LARSON              NAV   CPT 28 JAN 45 DUISBURG ((Lead Nav originally from Lt C. Daniels Crew, see below)
LT FREDERICK H. THEESFELD  BOM   CPT  7 MAR 45 DATTELN, SIEGEN, MY (S.T.) 
T/SGT ALFRED VIGNOLA        TTE    CPT 28 JAN 45 DUISBURG ?
T/SGT E.S. BALCSENIUK         ROG   CPT 28 JAN 45 DUISBURG ?
S/SGT W.R. KLEIN                 BTG   NOC (replaced by Radar Operator in late October 44 when this became a lead crew) 
S/SGT P.J. HAHN                   WG   NOC (orignal LWG on Capt H. Smith Crew, replaced Sgt Dressel after he was wounded on 25/8/1944 Politz)
S/SGT L.S. "Andy" ANDERSON  TG   CPT 28 Jan 45 DUISBURG  (replaced Sgt Kauffman)

Now based on mission completions and photo evidence, Lt Theesfeld came off this crew at some point since he completes two months after the Spurgeon Crew does.  Also  S/Sgt Dressel returns to the Crew but not sure in what capacity since photo evidence shows both Hahn (who replaced Dressel when he was injured on Aug 25, 1944) and Dressel in Crew photos.

350TH SQDN.. CREW, AS ABOVE, JOINED THE 100TH ON 29 MAY 44. 
Believe this crew came overseas with only one waist gunner. A SGT E.E. DEVERE, a spare gunner filled in at LWG for the first 4 missions this crew flew. The LWG position would continue to be filled by spare gunners. When crews were reduced to nine men in late July 1944, Sgt Kauffman and a Sgt Stommes traded off flying missions with the crew as waist gunners.  Kauffman was later taken off the crew after 8 Aug 44 mission  and put in Spare gunners Pool.  Records show that he flew 4 missions as a TG with Lt Spurgeon Crew in Aug/Sept. 1944.  Sgt W. Stommes (Stemmes/Stommos) filled in on 14 missions as a left waist gunner. Starting on August 15th, Sgt Bracco flew as WG on this crews final 9 missions 

CREW ROSTER OF 19 SEP 44  HAS WALTON, KAUFFMAN, & GEHRMAN REPLACED BY JACK BOURNE & SALVATORE J. BRACCO, FROM THE AUSTIN DUNLAP CREW, AND ROBBIE L. GILL FROM THE A.S. SPEAR CREW. ON 11 AUG 44 KAUFFMAN WAS REPLACED BY T/SGT GEHRMAN.
