P-47 losses on 3 Dec 1944

Who were the pilots in P-47s Serial-No. 42-28818 of 36th FG and 44-20219 of 358th FG.
I am also interested in the MACR No. and where did these P-47s come down.

Many thanks to Flupke for answering my latest quests.

Jörg

Hello Jorg

The pilot of the P-47D-28-RA #42-28818 36th FG 22nd FS was the 2nd Lt Conner Joseph (KIA?) no idea of the place and circumstance sorry

For the #44-20219 358th FG 367th FS it was the 2nd Lt Harris David (KIA?) hit and crashed while strafing a train in the area of Heidelberg

Regards
Phil

Re: P-47 losses on 3 Dec 1944

Joerg,

Hope this finds you well. (After 12 years) I see your interest in Lt. David Harris. He flew with my great uncle Lt. Jack Buchanan in the 367th and both were killed within two weeks of each other.

I recently made contact with Harris' niece.

I have Harris's IDPF and some other information. Let me know if I can be of any help to you.

Thanks
