Scope and content

Research by Davenport, including copies of Individual Deceased Personnel Files (IDPFs) and his notes and correspondence, relating to S/Sgt Earl B. Holly and Walter S. Baron.
Davenport, as 446th Bomb Group historian, appears to have been researching a discrepancy in the records relating to Holly and Baron and their dates and places of death. In some of the information, Baron is listed as serving in the 446th Bomb Group, but papers copied from his Individual Deceased Personnel File (IDPF) list him as 713rd Bomb Squadron, 448th Bomb Group. In the Roll of Honor, both Baron and Holly are listed under the 446th Bomb Group.
S/Sgt Walter S. Baron is believed to have been killed in action on a mission over Landes Bussac, 31 December 1943. The IDPF papers were obtained from the Department of the Army by a Freedom of Information request.
S/Sgt Earl B. Holly served in the 705th Bomb Squadron. He is believed to have been killed in action during a mission to Ludwigshafen, 26 August 1944. The IDPF papers were obtained from the Department of the Army by a Freedom of Information request.
