I found this poster many years ago entitled "Consolidated B-24 Liberator JOISEY BOUNCE in formation with aircraft from the 93rd Bomb Group based at Hardwick". Since I flew with the 93rd, I had to have it! Photo had to be before "Tidal Wave", 1 Aug 43. A gunner flew all positions (except top). Joined 376th Bomb Group at Bengasi, Libya in Sep 43 - left Feb 44 from San Pancrazio, Italy (22 missions) for the 93rd Bomb Group, at Hardwick, England (18 missions) and finishing 12 Jun 44. "1" official kill at Weiner Neustadt, Austria 2 Nov 43 - "3" unconfirmed.
