Recovery of Remains
Four sets of remains were recovered from the south of Malaita as unknowns: X-176 (shoe size 7.5D), X-177 (with officer's shoe), X-178, X-179. These are highly likely to be four (or all five) missing members of this crew.
The missing members of the crew are memorialized on the tablets of the missing at Manila American Cemetery.
For reasons unknown, the unknowns: X-176 (shoe size 7.5D), X-177 (with officer's shoe), X-178, X-179 were transported to Hawaii and were buried at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific (Punchbowl).
