KILLED IN ACTION WWII
UNITED STATES ARMY AIR CORPS (SSGT)
9th AIR FORCE

Turrett gunner & flight engineer based out of England. Plane went down in Scotland with all hands killed in action.

Accident details for this aircraft are sparse. The B-24D Liberator 42-41030 had taken off from Gander in Newfoundland for Prestwick in Scotland. However, as he began his descent into Prestwick (then, RAF Ayr / Heathfield) the pilot flew too low over the peaks of Arran. Consequently, the aircraft struck the side of Beinn Nuis, not far from Goat Fell on Arran

Beloved son of Mr. & Mrs. Ira Brantner of Havre de Grace, Md.

Originally interred in Scotland, his remains were brought back to the United States aboard the transport ship Lawrence Victory on July 2, 1948. His remains were repatriated to US soil shortly thereafter.
