Douglas B-32 Determinator 42-108544 28 Aug 1945

The Douglas B-32 Determinator saw brief action in the last days of the Pacific War with 386th BS/312th BG.

On 28 Aug 1945 there were two serious accidents, with 15 men KIA in total, 2 of whom in 42-108528 (Murphy, Morgan).

Names of KIA in 42-108544 (aborted take-off on Okinawa) are harder to come by. Of these 13 I have found 8 so far:

Lt Leonard M. Sill (P)
Lt Glen W. Bowie (CP)
Lt Kenneth C. Maule (gunnery officer)
Lt William H. Colley
S/Sgt Max E. Holben
Sgt. Raymond A. Repp
Capt Woodrow H. Hauser (ground/intel officer)
Capt William P. Barnes, III (ground/communications officer)

Any help with the remaining five names appreciated, thanks.

PS No MACR (fate of crew known) or accident report (operational mission).

Regards,

Leendert
