    The 379 Americans

    The following are the names of the 379 Americans who were killed while serving with Bomber Command and wearing the uniform of the Royal Canadian Air Force. These names are etched upon Canada's Bomber Command Memorial amongst those of their Canadian comrades. Beside each name is the type of aircraft they were flying as well as the airman's home town and state. We thank Hugh Halliday for providing this information.
