*G - ? SGT 5/6 (M-P.I.)? [This means Killed in Action / body not recovered, memorialized
on the Tablets of the Missing, Manila Cemetery in the Philippines]
*(Unidentified Sergeant from another aircrew)
I'm trying to determine the identity of the Sergeant who was KIA. The author presumes he's listed on the Tablets of the Missing in Manila, which would make sense. But without a name it'd be pretty much impossible to figure out who he was. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Perhaps someone has the monthly reports or other paperwork from the squadron the would indicate the man's name. It doesn't appear that there's an accident report or missing air crew report for the incident.
