We are extremely proud of all of the personnel of the 91st Bombardment Group. We truly are indebted to you. Bless you all.

I also wish to thank the hosts of this site for making it available to us. It is a wonderful journey.

My father was Chaplain W.H. Biggs, stationed at Bassingbourn during the war. He had the unique pleasure of becoming a father by adoption(me) though he had been over there for awhile. I have been told he took quite a ribbing when he passed out the cigars. He was career AF and was always known by the nickname "Chappy." He told me before he died that he went on one bombing raid with "his men." Don't know with whom or when and maybe he just wanted to have gone. Would be interested to hear from anyone who might remember him.

I am looking for information on my deceased father (Donald R. Mohr from Jackson Mi.)who was a waist gunner on a B-17. He was on a plane named Blond Bomber 2. I believe he was in England in 1944 or 1945. I was told he was not with the 381st. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Dear 91ster's.

I am a 24 yr old guy from England who is very interested in the history of the 91st during there stay in the UK during WWII. I attended your Tucson reunion in 1996, and have joined in with many of your 'Royston Rally Rounds - Return to Bassingbourn' trips over the past 8 years. I would just like to say how much pleasure meeting all you guys has given me over the years, and how privilaged I have felt in your company. I have communicated with many men and wives of the 91st, and visited many in their homes in the USA, and have always been treated to superb hospitality.

If any veterans or relations of veterans need any assistance in returning to their old haunts of WWII in England, please let me know, and I will be only too happy to help in any way I can.

In addition, I have always had a great affection for the B-17 of the 91st/401st called 'Times A-Wastin,' which was lost to flak on April 8th 1945, just one month before V.E. Day. I have a reproduction painted A2 leather flying jacket that I wear everyday, with the art-work of this B-17 emblazoned on the back. Any crew members that flew on the 'Times A-Wastin' that would care to contact me would be welcomed with open arms!

In 1993 I met up with the original crew chief 'Roy Fratz' in Florida, who told me of his feelings when he walked out to an empty hard-standing, when the other 91st B-17's were home. Roy had successfully maintained his B-17 through over 100 missions, only to be lost with a composite crew, just needing a few more missions each to finish their tour.

Thankyou '91st Bomb Group' for your part in history, and a wonderful web site.

I will be back often to do research. Thank you for your time and devotion to detail. And for keeping the these memories alive; it would do all of us good to remember those that gave so much for others.
