Data derived from many sources. Corrections/Additions welcomed via Helpdesk

* NOTE ON DATES: IMPORTANT: For consistency, the Date is given as the date the mission TOOK OFF since the precise time of a loss is not always certain. Take Off date is unambigous and fixed in the official records, but obviously in those cases where the incident occurred before midnight UK time, then the Take Off Date will be the same as the Incident Date. Of course, most Bomber Command missions flew through midnight, therefore a Luftwaffe claim against a plane - or a locally generated crash report - may record the incident as occurring on the day following our Take Off Date. Bear this in mind when cross-referencing to our Luftwaffe Victories by Name/Date Database and other Luftwaffe sources. In some cases other sources may quote the date following our date, using locally generated reports as their source. To add to the potential for confusion, remember to take into account a Luftwaffe recorded date will be in local time, 1 hour ahead of UK time. When we discover a validated Incident Date we change our record if necessary

pacificwrecks.comFour of the 12-member crew exited the aircraft after it had been hit and those captured by the Japanese were murdered. Donald Crotteau was one of the men who bailed out, along with fellow crew members Hyler and Handleman. They were likely injured and managed to evade capture for two days. On April 12, 1944, however, they were captured and ultimately were murdered or died of their injuries. The other crew members went down with the plane and the entire crew was officially declared dead the day of the mission. Donald Greenman was another of the four who bailed out. He was likely captured on April 10, 1944 by a Japanese Army patrol sent to investigate a report of an enemy aircraft being shot down. Japanese records say a patrol captured an 'American pilot' (likely Greenman) and the next day took him to Diri and later he was walked or transported to Hansa Bay. The Japanese report says on April 16, 1944 four PoWs from the crash were transported to Bogia. According to the Japanese, two of the prisoners - Greenman and Handleman - 'died on route'. Possibly, this was a Japanese euphemism meaning they were murdered or otherwise killed. The fact is when Leading Private Oshina returned to Hansa Bay he had only two prisoners with him and Greenman was not one of them. William Hyler was reportedly captured by Japanese troops and murdered about 2 weeks later. Paulsen's remains were recovered and identified by American authorities on July 16, 2014 and he and the others identified were interred on March 18, 2015 at Arlington National Cemetery with full military honours.
