    Hello,
    Am seeking info on these three airmen.

    Campbell, Jack R. - 1Lt. - O-659097 - 13 PRS - Belgium - 04/05/1944.
    Doolittle, Clinton L. 1Lt. - O - 659362 - Tunisia - 12/15/1943.
    Mazurek, Raymond A 2Lt. - O- 885563 - France - 04/14/1944.
    With regards to Campbell and Mazurek, the ABMC site has them as 13 PS, 7 RG, while the DPAA site has them as 13 PS 3 RG.
    Thanks
    Alex

    Well that is just Great.
    Thank you
    My opinion is the year was 1942 and not 1943. Reason the newspaper cutting, and memorial stone with date .
    Only downside would be if the stone was laid after Ww2 ?
    Also if the newspaper cutting can be linked to a 1943 or later issue.
    However, Tunisia and 1942 would fit I feel.

    What can I say Guys,
    AGreat Big Thank you.

    Details taken from
    Volumes 3 of Chris Shores "History of the Mediterranean Air War".
    Tuesday 15th December 1942
    American losses were :
    B26 - 319BG 41-17759.
    B17 - 301BG 41-24369.
    F-4 - 3PG pilot MIA.(mission Tunis- Bizerta).
    From the F-4 Serial number list I have it looks like that a/c involved was 41-2378 (5596), reported date 15/12/42.
