WWII Escape and Evasion Research

Under the heading of research I am grouping five main subjects:

1. Aircraft Crash Records and Crash Sites

2. Luftwaffe Fighter Claims of Downed Aircraft

3. National Archives Research (U.S.)

  • Escape & Evasion Reports Available On Line
  • Notes on Using the Textual Research Room
  • Belgian Helper Files by Box Number
  • Dutch Helper Files by Box Number
  • Airmen Helper Questionnaires
  • Prisoner of War (POW) Records
  • Enlistment Records

4. Sources Consulted in my Research

5. U.S. Census Records

On a separate page, My Library, I have listed books that might be useful.

As time permits, I will add information on the use of other WWII archives, in particular the British National Archives, formerly known as the Public Record Office, Kew, London.

  1. My uncle’s full name was Thelma Berto Wiggins Jr.The nickname “jockey”was inherited from his father,and was also shared by his younger brother.The name came about as a result from Thelma Sr.falling from a horse during his army years.
    Uncle Berto passed in January 1976.

  2. Dear Sir,
