Casualties of 21 Base Defence Sector: e-mail from CWGC

E-mail to Peter Best:

Dear Mr. Best,

Apologies for the delay in our reply, due to the fact that it has taken the RAF Air Historical Branch so (much) time to find the appropriate records.

Unfortunately, due to the fact that RAF records rarely mention 21 Base Defence Sector or all its constituent units, it has proved very difficult to confirm exactly who the casualties were on Omaha Beach.  However, after many hours of research work, those listed in the attached report are considered to be the most likely.

I trust you find this information useful.

Yours sincerely

Roy Hemington

CWGC Archive Supervisor
