I don't know who the two people are loading the bomb, but the person looking on from the right is my Father, John "Johnny" Cardoza (Ground Crew Armorer). Taken on the eve of D-Day showing clusters of antipersonnel bombs being loaded on to SPIRIT OF NOTRE DAME. The plane carried 40 of these clusters, 20 on each side, for a total of 240 bombs.
