Dear Sir, I am an archeologist and regional historian of Pilsen, Czech and now I find your message about the fate of your uncle Robert J. Dobson on airraid Pilsen (originaly Plzen) on 25th April 1945. I am very interesting about it /about 12 years ago I and my friend published book about airraid on Pilsen/. I would like to ask you for any other, detailed information on your uncle, I will welcome if you have some information about his life, military career or even some photographs of him or his crew and plane. Yours truly, Jan Vladar [email protected] The story of your uncle aircraft is still mysterious, all crewmembers bailed out over combat line (somewhere in Germany, close Czech border) but S/Sgt. William W. MEIKLE was missing, her body was found 5 years after war and now he is buried on Fort Scott National Cemetery, Kansas I am ready to prepare a short story about The Thumper crew from our local archives.
