From the Titusville Herald, Titusville, Pennsylvania dated Tuesday, August 14, 1945:

War with Nazis Took Greatest Toll; Revised List Shows 52 Are Dead

Only One Yet Listed As Missing in this Phase of War

A revised list of casualties suffered by the Titusville region in the war with Germany, corrected since the original list appeared in The Herald on May 7, shows that victory over the Nazis was obtained at a cost of 207 men.

This debit on the manpower ledger includes all casualties reported up to yesterday. There may be a few reported later, when the final casualty lists from Europe are received in Washington and the next of kin notified.

Included on the Titusville area list are 45 killed in action, five reported dead, two dead of wounds, one missing in action, 27 prisoners of war and 127 Wounded.

First to fall in the struggle with the Nazis was Seaman First Class Gerald G. Harvey, reported missing in the South Atlantic as of Jan. 9, 1943, and now presumed dead, and the last reported up to yesterday was Sgt (T-4) Frank J. Lewis who died on July 1, 1945, in Germany.

Following is the list of casualties, giving name, age, date when becoming a casualty, place, and parents. Many who were taken prisoner in North Africa were seized originally by the Italians, but ended up in German prison camps.

The age and rank of each man is given as of the date he became a casualty.

(This list does not include casualties in the war with Japan, or casualties in training camps in the States.)
