July, 1999 USAF Missing Persons
hope that you can help me with this enquiry. About 1 year ago I
was metal detecting on the North coast of Belgium, close to Ostend and
found a sterling silver identitiy bracelet. This bracelet was completely
black and by the amount of work needed to remove the black layer of oxidation
from it I can only assume that it had been buried in the sand for many
bracelet plate has the US Airforce pilots wings symbol applied to the
front surface and under the wings the name ASHLEY M. GUYNN has been engraved.
On the reverse side the number 0-746256 is engraved ( I am not sure whether
the first character is a letter O or a zero ).
it be possible for you to investigate this and advise how this bracelet
was lost. Was it lost during an operation during WW11? If so, would it
be possible to let me know the details of what occurred. I am extremely
curious about this. If it indeed was caused during action perhaps the owner
survived and would like his bracelet returned, or if he is no longer alive
perhaps there are close relatives alive who may cherish this bracelet,
in which case I would gladly contact these and arrange its return. I would
be very grateful if you could investigate this matter for me, or if you
are unable to access this information would you kindly advise whom I could
contact to help me further.
very much in advance.
