In a file on Hungarian and Yugoslavian helpers of Allied airmen that researcher John Howes located at the British National Archives there was a single one-page document specifically devoted to Yugoslavian helpers.  (There are also some scattered references to Yugoslavians mixed in with the Hungarian records.)  Yugoslavian help to Allied airmen is well-known.  Why there was just this one list, I don’t know.  If I find more information at the US National Archives on Yugoslavian helpers when I visit it in May, I will add it here.  Note that the correct citation of the source for the Hungarian and Yugoslavian records at The National Archives of the UK is WO 208/5479 Hungary & Yugoslavia.  I have made a typed list of the 14 names that appear on the Yugoslavian list so that they can be found during an Internet search.  The image follows the typed list.
