Anyone ever see the trunk grouping with the Mickey Mouse painted on it ?

 

This is that man's son's grouping from WW2.

 

He flew 3 supply missions to US paratroopers during Market Garden. 9/18-20/44

 

On one of the missions he actually fell out but was able to get back in.

Close up of the insignia just as the day it was found from the vet.

 

I found the 2 wings in the pocket and always left them there.

Here is a 5 by 5 " photo of the 9/18/44 supply mission over Groesbeek.

 

If you can blow up this photo there is some great detail.

His unit was part of the 9th Air Force.

 

These were in the pocket with the wings.

Caption for previous photograph.

The C-109 was not so "affectionatly" named the "C-One O' "Boom" seeing as it was a gas carrier .

JS,

 

That photo is the first time I ever heard of a C-109.

 

I love those wise crack nick names.

 

Thanks
