12th Bomber Group loss 22nd Sept, 1943


Seeking serial number AF a B-25C Mitchell of the 12th Bomber Group that was lost in action on the 22nd September, 1943. MACR 16514.

The a/c was received direct hits from enemy AA whilst over San Lucia, Italy. Subsequently crashing and burning at the edge of Voltuara.
This was Mission 140, but the first for this crew of seven and the a/c.

Crew were:
Harmon, Harvey L. - 2Lt - O-1704176 - KIA.
Ballard, William F - 2Lt - O-733504 - KIA.
Shadwell, Marion P - 2Lt - O-666716 - KIA.
Cent, Franklin L - Sgt - 35417130 - KIA.
Minck, Edward J - S/Sgt - 31168027 - EUS, N.S.
McHugh, William D - T/Sgt - 20120812 - RTD, N.S.
Krueger, Henry A - T/Sgt - 16046360 - RTD, N.S.

Could not find any 12 BG website that might have the details.

The only possible a/c would seem to be 41-12961 reported as crashed this date, but no further info on this a/c either.

Many thanks
