1Lt Sidney Slotoroff was a crewmember of the 12nd Troop Carrier Squadron 60th Troop Carrier Group, flying a C-47 tailnumber 41-18418. The Group was dropping British paratroopers near Catania in Sicily. His plane was shot down on 14 July 1943. Lt Slotoroff and his crew were killed. He was buried in the temporary American GELA Cemetery in grave H-88-1047. After the war his remains were buried in grave J-8-44 in the Sicily Rome Cemetery in Nettuno, Italy.

Over 1,200 men and women were buried in the GELA Cemetery. I am writing a book about the GELA Cemetery and hope to finish it next year (2015)
