Capt. William N. Doughten 506th Bomb Squadron 44th Bomb Group

My grandfather, Captain William N. Doughten was stationed in Shipdham with the 506th from Sept 1943 to the end of the war. He was ground crew, I believe. He spoke of James Curtis McAtee, a colonel, who was stationed there and was one of the pilots of the Aug 1943 ploesti raid. Col. Mcatee is still alive and well.

Captain Blades 44th Heavy Bomb Group 66th Squadron

My Dad, La Verne L. Carvo, would like to know if there is anyone who has information about the armorer personnel who serviced the guns on the B24 bombers headed by Captain Blades.

David G Brown 67th Bomb Sqd.

My late grandfather, David G Brown served in the 44th Bomb Group (Flying Aceballs), 67th Squadron (I think) as a lead navigator. I would love to hear from anyone who is still alive and was friends with my grandfather. I love him and miss him very dearly. He will forever be my hero.

Robert Dubowsky 66 & 68 Bomb Sqdns. 44th Bomb Group

I flew 35 missions with 44th Bomb Group from July 1944 to March 1945. I also did duty as a co-pilot and flew with the 66th and 68th Bomb Squadrons. I was shot down on my 33rd mission on the return leg from Dresden, when I bailed out just inside the allied line. That is the reason I had to fly two more missions to complete the tour requirement of 35 missions. A piece of my parachute is in the 2nd Air Division Association memorial library at the Forum in Norwich.

Nick Konsuvo 303rd Bomb Group

My uncle, Nick Konsuvo served with the 303rd Bomb Group (H) `The Hell's Angels', part of the 8th Air Force. He was stationed at Molesworth. I would love to hear from anyone who remembers him or any information about his particular squadron, the 444th.

Robert Francis Heines 67th Squadron 44th Bomb Group

My father, Robert F. Heines, was in the 67th Squadron, 44th Bomb Group, Station 15. He never talked about the war but I heard stories from my mom. I was told my dad would type the death certificates of the pilots that would not return from combat. Because a lot of them were his buddies, he probably didn't talk much about it. He asked once if he could go up in the plane and they told him "No, we lose enough guys during combat we don't need to lose any more."
