This page is designed to enable us to get to know some of the personnel who served with the Squadrons operating B24 Liberators. These military men were prepared to go where they were ordered, when they were ordered and in which aircraft to do so. These men - proudly wearing their uniforms - were human; so naturally, they experienced feelings of fear, self-doubt and aggression. As the months roll on, this page will present an ever increasing number of stories about the personnel who were connected with the incredible B24 in the early forties.
To read the story of one of these men, select a name in the right hand column under the heading, ‘Inside the Uniform’.
Here are some of the things that these men may tell us about:
Their early years: where they were born and when; the schools that they attended; the number of brothers and sisters that they have; and, some happy memories of their childhood.
Military life: when they enlisted; training; postings; their greatest moments; and, when they were discharged.
Family life: marriage; children; where they lived; their post-war occupations; and, their happiest memories.
Great achievements: what they are very proud of having done.
