Casualties Evacuated/Plane Crashes - July 26, 1944
In researching my father's unit ( 90th Div./358/Co. D), I've interviewed several members of his Company. Several stated that there had been a rumor in the fall of '44 that a member of Co. D, PFC. Camilo Gonzales SN 38155020, died in a plane crash over the English Channel while being evacuated. No one really knew if it was a fact. I do have the Morning Report for Company D on July 6, 1944 that shows Gonzales as being wounded. Gonzales (serial # is correct) is listed on the ABMC site with the DOD as July 26,1944,MIA/Buried at Sea.An article appeared in the Chicago Tribune on July 28, 1944 that a 9th Air Force plane carrying 22 men who were being evacuated to Scotland, crashed over the English channel. I'm relatively certain that this was the plane that Gonzales was on.
Besides his IDPF,does anyone know how to find additional information regarding the crash, including the names of everyone on board?
Thanks and I apologize for the length of this post.
