Individual casualty questionnairs

"I saw Lt.Marangas bail out on S/Sgt. Hubert A.Brabec`s back. Sgt. Brabec blacked out when the chute opened, and when he came back to consciousness, he saw no sign of Lt . Marangas   "While I was in the German hospital, this German Major told me that a body had been found and was identified as Stephen Marangas by his dog tag..."   "St.Keeneys of our crew said Marangas` chute could not be found....."   "German intelligence officer said Marangas was found, and identified by his dog tag. Reported to be burried in a Norwegian cemetry"


"When S/Sgt. Brabec regained senses Lt. Marangas was not with him..." "Misplaced chute on board. Due to battledamage and resulting gas fumes, could not cross bomb bay to procure extra chute carried in waist. In desperation went out with radioman. Fell off while opening of chut............" "The underground men in Norway that I made contact with said they found one person.........."
