|Crew 108 Listing
My cousin loaned the second photo album to me, I'll forward the more
interesting photos to
you. A nice aerial
photo of the 448th barracks. (below right)
I did make contact with the family of
the late Pilot Lt. William Whetsell. The nose art (Stork) was inspired
by both William Whetsell and Paul Davis both having wives expecting babies. After over
60 years of no contact between
Paul and William, both being from different parts of the country, the two
babies now live within a few miles of each other
in East Tennessee and didn't know it.
