I hope someone out there can help! We are trying to get info on my Dad's during WWII.
His name is James W. Mercer (died 1980), he was a B17 Radio Gunner and we believe he was
on the Shoo Shoo Baby. My mother got a telegram during the war that said he was shot down
over Posen, Poland. Dad was in the Army Air Force from 12/26/42 to 10/3/45. We are looking
for a crew list or anyone that new my Dad during this time.
Thank you so very much!

I am the daughter of Warren D. Price, who was a tailgunner on a
B-17F based from Bassingbourne, a small village near Cambridge,
England. Does anyone remember my father? He's had a stroke and I would like to help him
get in touch with old friends. He
mentioned a superior officer, named Major Reaume, whom he admired very much, and I would
very much appreciate any information regarding crewmembers who may remember my Dad. He
mentioned that Major Reaume's mother owned a small airport in California, and that this is
how he obtained his early flight training.

So far what I've seen is the work of someone who really cares about the 91st. Jim and
Suzi, you are doing a terrific job with this web page. I flew as a ball turret gunner in
the 323rd. I was on my 9th one when we went down on the Wilhelmshaven mission of 5/21/43.
I plan on going back to Bassingbourn this fall, my first trip back. Keep up the good work,
it says a lot about the quality of the 91st people.

My father was a ball turret gunner in the 91st bg (401st bombardment squadron). He
passed away in 1993. He went to all the reunions and the summer before he died we went to
England to visit Bassingbourn and all his old haunts.
He would have loved a site like this.

Dear All at the 91st BG ---
Jesse Carnes from 16010 Composite Squadron (USAF-Aux. [CAP])here. I am soooo glad that you
finally have such a nice WEB site!!!
I have always had this thing about the 8th AAF and especially for
the 91st BG of Bassingbourn.
Truly, the 91st is the epitomy of "Twelve O' Clock High"!!
By the way, Col. Bob Morgan [and his enterprises] sold me
a KILLER-DILLER 324th SQ patch!! I put it on my A-2.

A most enjoyable site. I was hoping to be able to gather some info on my uncle, John W.
Plummer, who was a B-17 radioman with both the 91st and 305th Bomb groups. Unfortunately I
do not know the exact time frames of his stay with each group, but I will keep looking.
Uncle John passed away last March...I wish I had asked him for more info when I had the
Sincerely, Bernard McMann
