The original Crew 57 was assigned Aircraft # 42-52100 to Fly the southern route to England
Lt.Elmer H. Hammer Jr(P)            F/O Morgan Goodpasture (CP Lt. Morris A Thompson (N)          Lt. Roger E. Cuddeback (B)
Sgt Edwin J Wingfeild (E)             Sgt Thaddus M Domzalski (RO Sgt Arthur R Krueger(As't EN)     Sgt Francis A Farris (G)
Sgt Melvin P Rosencranz (G)        Sgt. Fred G Rowe (G)

It is known this crew crashed once in England. I believe it was on their first mission. Anyone have other details I would like to hear from them. I believe all crew members were safe and returned . I also believe it was last days of Dec 43 and the same mission one of our Crew was flying as make-up and was lost to POW status. I will try to research this more. Also as to why this crew was replaced.
