Flt Sgt Edward Wilhelm Haglund, R/68760

Post by georgetanksherman » Mon Apr 13, 2020 8:24 am

Good morning, I need a hand please in finding out the right info on this warrior, there is misleading info on him.

Flt Sgt Edward Wilhelm Haglund, R/68760, Wireless / Air Gunner (WAG), Keokuk, Iowa, U.S.A., Killed in Action September 14,1942, Aircraft went missing, believed to have been from enemy action. Was assigned to #12 Manning Depot

One said he died flying in an A-20 "Boston" Aircraft on September 14, 1942

and another said he was in a B-25 "Mitchell" 41-12858, on the same date

Any and all help with this truly appreciated, ALSO, hope everyone is SAFE and HEALTHY, All the Best !

Cheers

NOTE: the the photo above, one of the POW’s was American.....but he must have been in the RAF or another Commonwealth Country as his rank is “Flying Officer T. M. Watt”

Sorry for the late response Temujin, things have been a bit hectic. Thank You as always for the help on this. I bet it felt a bit strange, being an American with the R.C.A.F. and being "Loaned" out to an American Unit. Hope you are Safe and Health, And Again realy appreciate the help !

Cheers !
