Last Known Activity

". . . In early November 1950, Bart was assigned to Company K, 3rd Battalion, 8th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Cavalry Division, near Unsan, North Korea, when Chinese People’s Volunteer Forces attacked the regiment, forcing the unit to withdraw. Many soldiers attempted to escape and evade the enemy but were captured and marched to prisoner of war camps. Bart was declared missing in action as a result of the battle that occurred between Nov. 1 and 2, 1950.

In 1953, during prisoner of war exchanges known as “Operation Big Switch,” a repatriated American soldier reported that Bart was held as a prisoner of war at the Pyoktong prisoner of war camp and died in February 1951. Additionally, Bart’s name appeared on a POW list compiled by the Chinese, dated Aug. 8, 1953, which stated Bart died while in captivity in March, 1951. Based on this information, a military review board amended Bart’s status to deceased in 1953."

Davey's remains were identified and accounted for on 24 March 2016. CPL Bart's name is permanently inscribed on the Courts of the Missing at the Honolulu Memorial.
