Birth: Oct. 30, 1918
Death: Dec. 29, 1943

W W 2 Veteran Captain Dahl was one of eighteen Army personnel killed (6 crew, 12 passengers) when B-17F Flying
Fortress #42-5791, nicknamed "Ruthless," of the 95th Bomb Group, 334th Bomb Squadron, struck a hill, two miles southwest of Newmarket, Wales, United Kingdom.

The bomber had departed for an "R&R" flight to Scotland.

Flying through heavy cloud cover and in freezing fog,the navigator relied on maps, and when the pilot thought they had reached the coast, descended out of the clouds but they were off course by four miles and still over mountainous terrain.
