Info Contributor - Rick Anderson VIA Dale E. Martz (Co-Pilot)

Dale Martz is my dad's cousin. Group was named "The Flying Horsemen". Flown overseas to Grottaglie, Italy, by Mugler's crew in August, 1944.

Mugler's crew was aboard 42-51950, an unnamed ship, when shot down 13 Oct 44 (Friday the 13th). All 10 crew members evaded capture, with the help of Yugoslavian partisans, and returned via the Russians, in a C-47.

Flown to the Goioa Depot, in the ferry flight, at war's end, 29 Apr 45.

In the Partisans my name was Mirko. The website mentions that all ten crew members evaded capture by Germans, with the help of Yugoslavian partisans, in 1944. I was one of those partisans (at the time acting as a veterinarian at the animal hospital of the 8th Partisan division) who picked them up, the only one who spoke some English. I remember the crew very well, and was in touch, after I immigrated to the States after the war, with Warren Mugler and Henry Flesh (I still have their post-war photographs).
