Casualties Index 1940 - 1949


The casualty listings have been organised in two ways, the first is alphabetically and the second is by date.  If you do not know the date of death, you can use the search facility to find the name.

[1918 - 1929] [1930 - 1939] [1940 | 1941 | 1942 | 1943 | 1944 | 1945 | 1946 | 1947 | 1948 | 1949] [1950 - 1959] [1960 - 1969] [1970 - 1979] [1980 - 1989] [1990 - 1999] [2000 - current]

The information in these pages has been gleaned from a variety of sources including the Commonwealth War Graves registers, Bomber Command Losses (Chorley), Fighter Command Losses (Franks), Coastal Command Losses (McNeil), 'They Shall Grow Not Old' (Allison), 'For Your Tomorrow' (Martyn), RAAF listings on the AWM (Storr), 'Price of Peace', 'Final Landings' and 'Though Without Anger' (Cummings), the series on the 2nd Tactical Air Force (Shores and Thomas) and the Air-Britain series on RAF aircraft serial numbers.  In the course of my research from these sources, a number of errors were found and have been amended in these listings.  I have also referred to Unsung Heroes of the RAF - The Far East POWs (Stubbs) and Footprints on the Sands of Time (Clutton-Brock) to identify many of those who died in captivity.  I am also indebted to members of the RAF Commands Forum, especially the lat Henk Welting for their assistance.  These listings do not show those injured or aircraft lost without casualties and are not a replacement for the excellent publications and sources mentioned above.  I am also indebted to Peter Moran for providing details of casualties linked to Blackpool.

Until alphabetical listings can be added it is suggested that you first check the date of death on the CWGC website, if you don't know it, then go to the relevant link.
