      My Dad's war stories were things that I treasure and miss. In my unfinished research, Wendover,Halesworth some of his old pictures and stories like yours are also treasures for me. Thank you so much for sharing.

      He was an instrument man on B-24's and most probably served in the 489th BG. He wasn't much for 'gathering',but he would have had a blast at some of those reunions. He was prone to fist fights and riding a bike why in England. Not sure why that sticks in my mind. I do have a picture of him standing with all the ground crew on the wings of a B-24.He may have known Paul or Carroll and maybe their plane was the one he made an extra panel of instruments for the bombardier so he wouldn't have to strain his neck to look up at the pilot's set. I remember this story because he and another instrument man lost their leave the last weekend in Wendover to do all the other planes in the squadron before leaving for England! for my Dad/Sgt. Bennie Johnson,Texarkana,Arkansas.
