Personal Remembrances

Additional Information

Clemson records show his first name as Wilfred, but he was apparently born Wilfert because his father was Wilfert and Wilfert is on his tombstone.

We greatly appreciate input from Mr. Lloyd Holbrook, Researcher for the Sherman County Historical Society, Goodland, Kansas for his assistance in bringing the details of Lt Davis’ los to us and providing much of the information about the crash.
