Memorial at Fontain Fontain,
a village south of Besanšon, is where My Gal II crashed
on her first mission, killing all six crew members. The villagers
have held a memorial service every year since 1945.
The Missing Air Crew Report (MACR) was authorized in May 1943 to record the
facts of the last known circumstances regarding missing air crews. The report
was prepared by the unit shortly after the aircraft loss, usually within 48
hours, and then it was sent on to Headquarters, AAF.
