Air Ministry Casualty Communiques WWII
Throughout the Second World War, the Air Ministry regularly published Casualty Communiques through the Ministry of Information which announced, or updated the status of missing Air Force personnel.
These lists are the ‘Air Ministry Casualty Communiques – Royal Air Force’. The Casualty Communiques published by the Air Ministry list the fate of the personnel as casualties “in action” which were due to flying operations against the enemy; “on active service” which included ground casualties due to enemy action, non-operational flying casualties, fatal accidents and natural deaths. At the end of the communiques are details of any corrections or amendments which adds to the timeline of events for those personnel.
