Awards: Purple Heart

Missing in Action.
[Whereas the grave markers at Cambridge show the date of death, the Tablets of the Missing do not, because without confirmed information to the contrary, the date of death of those who are listed as missing in action, lost or buried at sea in WWII is a presumed date of death established by a military review board, usually as a year and a day from that on which the individual was placed in "missing" status. The incident date and the presumed date of death are then not the same. His declared date of death is therefore 8-Feb-44]
