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.

Sgt. Maurice Paulk Air Supply Corps 444th Sub-depot 303rd Bomb Group

I was a sergeant in the Air Corps Supply 444th Sub-Depot of the 303rd Bomb Group (H) - Molesworth. I stayed with a family in Dudley, Worcestershire during my passes. Wonderful people. Over my greatest protests I have eaten the last egg, piece of meat and drank the last glass of milk. Tried to tell them I was well fed on base - but to no avail. I then started bringing rations from the base - including sugar that I had "liberated".

Howard J. Bohle 427th Bomb Sqdn. 303rd Bomb Group

2Lt Howard J Bohle, USAAF was a pilot of a B-17G Flying Fortress and was shot down on 29th od April 1944. He was assigned to the 427th Bomb Squadron of the 303rd "Hells Angels" Bomber Group flying out of Moleworth, England. He would have made the forced march to Stalag XIII in Nuremburg and later to Stalag VII in Moosburg at the end of the war. He was from North Dakota and was my favorite uncle. He wouldn't share stories about his experiences as a POW and wondered if anyone knew him as a prisoner?
