 HORTON

Renamed to "GOLDEN GATOR"

Contributor - Theodore J. Williams

The Thomas Crew flew 42-40518 (which they named PUG) overseas in the 529th and the crew was transferred to the 531st (in the July replenishment) while PUG remained with the 529th. It was taken over by other 529th crews and finally by the Hinze Crew. They renamed this PUG to GOLDEN GATOR shortly before they were shot down in it late October '43.
