From my husband's (Matt Seiser) Grandfather, Keith M. Baker (Nose Gunner - Standing far left). "Taken at Nadzab, New Guinea. Our first time out, we flew with some R.A.A.F. guys to bomb Weewak, New Guinea. We flew a Brand New B-24M overseas but had to turn it in for this old D-Model. Our new airplane #1838, survived the war and was turned into a salvage yard in 1946!" Crew:
