Subject: B-24 Flight Crew
Date: Tue Sep 5, 2006 21:00

I am researching a B-24 crew that appears to have been assigned to the 320th Bomb Sq, 90th Bomb Gp and was lost on 17 Jan 1945. I have done alot of searching and cannot find a MACR on this plane or crew. I was wondering if you could shed any light on this. Six of the crew are buried in a group burial at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery in St. Louis. William F Courtney, Willian C Mabius, Edgar A Morley, Richard C Prater, Ellsworth A Scholl, John W Turner. Thank You for your time.
