Thank you very much for the information! :D


I just realized that I linked to the post above the one about incoming mail, but I have fixed the link now.


Glad you found it interesting.

Hey Thor. Have you contacted the 95th museum in England to see if they have any photos of Lt.Peery?

I sold them a grouping of 800 photos taken by a photographer for the 95th last year and there were many shots of pilots in the grouping. They are super nice there and will do whatever you need to help you with your research.

Take care.
