I was asked to give my e-mail so that some of the old guys and I could chat a bit. It would be nice to talk to some of the old flyers.

I was a pilot in the 323rd Sq. in 1943--my ship was named V-Packette and we went down in the channel on July 10, 1943

Hi: I am doing this as John has not been on this machine as yet.
I know he would like to hear from crew members. He was with the 509th squadron of the 351st bomb group of the 94 combat wing of the 1st air divisiion of the 8th Air Force.

Nice site to visit,it took me awhile to find it.

It is always a pleasure to visit any 91st Bomb Group site. I'm looking for anyone who may remember my uncle, John Plummer, who came over from the 305th to the 91st (401st Sqdn) about Sept of 1944. He had just rec. a commission as a 2Lt. and I believe was assigned as the Commo or Asst commo of the 401st. I know he flew a number of missions with the 91st, after having flown about 30 with the 305th as a Ssgt radioman/gunner. Lost Uncle John last April (99) and will always miss him. Hell of a guy, as were all the young eagles of the 8th Air force!

Re: 323rd Sqdn Jeep photos.
Lee drop me a line - may be able to help.

PS: The Tower Museum at Bassingbourn is ALWAYS looking for photographic & other material to assist us in telling the story of the 91st Bomb Group (H) and RAF Bassingbourn. Material can be promptly copied and returned to owner.
The Tower Museum has been the 91st Bomb Group's only dedicated museum for nearly twenty seven years and has had close associations with the 91st BGMA throughout that time. Our aim is simply to "keep the memory alive for those that come after."
Our hope that we may continue our close relations in the New Millennium - including the growing use of the Internet and e-mail.

First I would like to thank all those involved for a wonderful website. Had it not been for this site, I wouldn't have found, and joined the 91st BGMA.

Next I would like to ask for information anyone might have regarding 91st B17G 4231333 LG*W "Wee Willie" I have copies of the photos of her demise over or near Stendahl on April 8,1945 and also copies of the casualty report and where the KIA were/are interred. Specifically, I am looking for information, color photo's, memories, whatever, to attest to the colors of her nose art and specifics on her markings both official and unofficial. I have pictures of the nose art via "Plane Names and Fancy Noses" by Ray Bowden but I can only guess as to the colors of her nose art. I have been in contact with the tower museum in the past and Steve Pena has been more than generous with information that he has on her.

I also have conflicting reports as to whether or not there were survivors who made it out of "Wee Willie" before she exploded. I am hoping that the person listed as a survivor, is in fact that. I believe the man's name is Robert Fuller (1st Lt.) if I remember the crew list correctly. I would also like to know if there were two waist gunners stationed on fortresses at that late a date? The crew list only contains nine names, and all are accounted for except one waist gunner.

I have been researching the 91st for a few years, although, I must admit I haven't done justice to the word research (it seems like a just a collection of microfilm and paper right now). Any help anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Lastly I would like to express my sincerest appreciation to the men and women who sacrificed so much; my deepest admiration for those of the 91st and supporting units. Thank you.

My uncle, RAYMOND BUTLER, from GA. was KIA 22 Feb. 1944. He was BTG on B-17G, 42 - 39815 EMEIGH. According to Casualty Report, 3 were taken POW: Frederick H. McBride, Leslie A. Price and Fred A. Tabor. If any of these men made it home, and are still alive, I would really like to correspond with them and see if they remember anything about my uncle - he was only abt 20 yrs old. I was a small child and barely remember him. They were shot down at Lugde, 10 km SSW of Hameln, Germany - the target was Oschersleben Aviation Industry, Germany. Any help would be appreciated very much.
