The Drip's MACR (01165) as posted on B24.net
lists the faith of the crew as follows:
P l/LT D’Aoust, Wallace W. KIA
CP 2/LT Marshall, James W. KIA
N 2/LT Winzenburg, George T. KIA
B 2/LT Etheridge, Mart T. KIA
R T/S Dahlen, Russell E. KIA
E T/S Anderson, Thomas (NMI)POW
AE S/S O’Neill, Christ D. KIA
NG S/S Jereb, John F. POW
WG S/S Sutton, Ralph H. POW
TG SGT Blanc, Alex D. POW
I have some questions someone will be able to answer I am sure:
1) T/Sgt's Thomas Anderson's name is followed by the abbreviation NMI. I looked in this topic
but didn't see it listed there.
2) The MACR goes on to say specifically:
S/Sgt O'Neill, 2/LT Marshall and 2/LT Winzenburg are buried at the Ardennes American Cemetary.
T/Sgt Anderson, S/Sgt John Jereb, S/Sgt Ralph Sutton and Sgt Alex Blanc became POW's.
1/LT D'Aoust and 2/LT Etheridge appear on the wall of the missing at the Netherlands American Cemetary, who therefore most likely went down with the plane. As JPAC was involved in this operation, can I assume that in due time we would be able to find out if any remains were discovered?
That leaves T/Sgt Russel Dahlen. Although listed as KIA there is no further mention of him as to where he might be buried etc.
A search at the American Battle Monuments Commission's website also draws a blank. Any suggestions as to where I could take the search from here on would be very much appreciated.
