Vet’s WWII ID Bracelet Found in England

BATAVIA, N.Y. (AP) -

A teenager digging near a former WWII air base found an ID bracelet lost by a U.S. airman nearly 70 years ago.

Adelbert Snell of Stafford received the metal bracelet from his wife and lost it while stationed at a U.S. bomber base in England.

Last summer, 15-year-old Glenn Morgan found the item while digging in the woods near Shipdham Airfield in Norfolk. His father started calling Snells in the U.S. and eventually reached one of his sons. The son says his father, who died three weeks ago, didn’t remember losing the bracelet.
