HARVEY LUNDY

By the time Osborne and crew force-landed on Majuro Atoll in late Dec 43, Kline had been replaced as Asst Engineer by Pvt Williston F. Rumsey. Lundy was piloting his own aircraft and was replaced as Co-Pilot by 1st Lt. Raymond D. Cloyer. So, with the exception of Lundy and Kline, the Osborne flight crew shown here were KIA or POW.
