1st Lt Louis Werfel - DNB 24 Dec 1943 - N. Africa

1st Louis Werfel (O-501739) got killed when the 'small airplane' he was traveling in crashed due to bad weather in the Algerian mountains on 24 Dec 1943

I have no info about number or fate of other occupants.

Lt Werfel was a chaplain attached to the 12th AF Service Command and was en route from Casablanca.
He was nicknamed the 'Flying Rabbi' because of his numerous flights to outlying posts.

Some websites say 24 Dec 1944 as date of death, but 1943 is correct.

Info welcome about names/fates of other people on board and the aircraft involved, thanks.
