I believe this to be Rex Locke who was in the Delaware Academy Class of 1941. I remember him as KIA during the war. Since there is no burial plot listed he is memorialized as Missing in Action or Buried at Sea. Is there one of his kin or a classmate that can verify his serial number?

Ralph's Bomb Group, 455th, was located about a mile down the road from my 484th BG. Going a step further I wrote to an acquaintance, Ret. Col Al Asch, who was Commanding Officer of the 455th BG. He sent me the following information about the mission of 27 July 1944, when Ralph met his Maker:

Mission # 85, July 27 We were briefed to bomb the marshaling yards and the Manfried Weiss Armament Works at Budapest, Hungary. Twenty-eight B24's loaded with 500# incendiary bombs were the last group in the Wing formation. Not only was the target obscured by smoke but the fighters were waiting for us, as well as the usual flak. We were attached by as many as 90 enemy fighters and they were very aggressive. We had a running battle for over 30 minutes. We lost five planes in the battle and 51 crewmen were missing in action, one of our biggest losses to date. We claimed 17 enemy fighters shot down with 14 probables. Seven of our planes received serious damage from flak and fighters, and two more suffered slight damage.

Ralph was from Delhi, Delaware Academy Class '42 with John Harper. - Allan Davidson, April 11, 2001
