Here's a New Request.

This request is from Captain Irving Mayer an F6F Hellcat Pilot.
On April 9th 1944, at the Truck Atoll, on the island of Uman at about 10 a.m.
He was going after a gun emplacement and was hit by the guns on a Japanese ship.
What ship was this and who was the gunner. Is there anyway to know.  He has no hard feelings and would like to meet or make contact with the gunner.  Irving was with another airplane in a dive and the gunner may not know that he hit him, but the shells damaged his tail section and hit the armor on the back of his seat really hard.  Irving said that he knew that he was hit, but felt no problems until he landed and then damaged the plane on landing.  Irving Mayer wrote "I thought that I killed Ernie Pyle"
If anyone can give any help, contact me here.

Ford B-24 Liberator finger Jewerly Ring - Possibly from Willow Run

Hello,

I have this ring that was given to me by my grandfather (indirectly via my mom) almost fifty years ago. I don’t really have any history other then knowing that he worked there and he was too old to serve during WWII. I have attached a photo to this e-mail and maybe you could shed some light on this for me. I was always under the impression that it was made by a group of folks in the bomber plant during the war years.  Thank you in advance for you help.  Click on picture for a much better view.
Michael  

Jeff,

Thank you very much. Back in 2005 I was at the Willow Run air show and I wore the ring to the event as I wanted to show it to some B24 owners and or aficionados. The two people I showed it to found it interesting but just drew a blank. Thank you again.
Michael.

If you have any information on this ring, please let me know here,  C. Jeff Dyrek.

Bomber Group Wings

Can anyone tell me what these wings are.  A lady found these in the Attic and we were thinking the wings might belong to a James Hefferman from our area but we are not sure.  She wrote that they were from the B96th Bomber Group but it may be the 896th Bomb Group.  If anyone knows, write to me by clicking on the picture above.  Thank you very much, C. Jeff Dyrek, Webmaster.

These are generic gunners wings. The were awarded to enlisted flight crew members who qualified for a gunners position on an aircraft

Mr. Dyrek,

The question on the website asked for the identification of the wings on that page. They are World War II USAAF Gunner's wings. Prior to the National Defense Service Act of 1947 that established the U.S. Air Force as a separate service branch, the Army Air Force had special wings for the various aerial positions http://www.ww2wings.com/wings/usaaf/usaafgunner.shtml  is a location that will help to verify the identity of the wings.

Hope this helps. 

Dewey Beck

Interesting Books that you can buy 

Flight Manual B-24 Liberator

A reprint of the official government handbook designed to show the new cadet how  to fly the aircraft. Heavily illustrated with dozens of photos, diagrams and charts. 146 pgs., 8½"x 11", sfbd.

Book Description
The Consolidated B-24 Liberator first saw combat in June of 1942, making a daring raid into Nazi-occupied Romania to bomb the oil fields at Ploesti. Nearly 18,500 Liberators were built during the war years, making it by far the most-produced American combat aircraft. It served in many roles beyond heavy bomber, transport, and anti-submarine patrol, and flew in Africa, Europe, India, the Atlantic, India and the Pacific Theatre. Originally printed by the United States Army Air Force in 1942, the B-24 Liberator Pilot's Flight Operating Manual taught pilots everything they needed to know before entering the cockpit. Originally classified "Restricted", the manual was declassified long ago and is here reprinted in book form. This affordable facsimile has been reformatted, and color images appear as black and white. Care has been taken however to preserve the integrity of the text.

B-24 Liberator Units
of the Pacific War 

Born out of an approach made by the US Army Air Corps to Consolidated for a bomber with superior performance to the B-17, the  Liberator was built in record numbers as the Allies' most abundant heavy bomber. From the first to see combat, the B-24D, to the  ultimate Liberator, the heavily modified PB4Y-2 Privateer, all navy versions are featured in this, the first of four volumes on the B-24  family. 

Book Description
Ever present in the Pacific from Pearl Harbor to VJ-Day, the B-24 Liberator proved to be the staple heavy bomber of the campaign. From its ignominious beginnings in the Allied rout in the Philippines and the Dutch East Indies, the bomber weathered the Japanese storm with a handful of bomb groups, which played a crucial role in checking the enemy's progress firstly in New Guinea, and then actively participating in the 'island hopping' campaign through the south-west Pacific.
