ROBERT J. SADLER

Starboard (Right) Side

Contributor - Patrick Collins
Shown with the 1st crew during training in the U.S. 1943. They were assigned another B-24D in England. On their second mission, the ill-fated raid on Bremen (13 Nov 43), all but two died in a mid-air collision with a damaged B-24D (see MACR 2501 and 2502). Sadler and Collier bailed out and were held in Germany as POWs. Kinard was not on that flight.
