100th Bomb Group pilots mission list


Recommended Posts

I found this at a gun show the past weekend in a binder with other miscellaneous ww2 era paperwork. On the back of the page it is inscribed-- "Base- Thorpe Abbots near Diss England, 120 miles NE of London. 100th Bomb Gp. 351 SQ. RG." WIth some help of a member of the 100th BG facebook page, he narrowed down the initials (RG) and missions to Glenn Rake of the 351st Squadron. With a little searching I found a couple crew photos of him online.
