    No worries guys, these are all available on the DVD titled "Damian Parer's Kokoda Frontline" well worth a look.

    I had an Uncle who was stationed in Austrailia with the 5th AF in WWII. He was a crew member on a B-25 or 24. He died in 1972 and I never really got to talk to him. I know he had quite a few pictures of some of the planes in his Squadron "The Grim Reapers". These vid clips are interesting.

    Hi,

    It sounds like your Uncle was a crew member of a B-25 Mitchell bomber with the 13th Squadron of the 3rd Bomb Group.

    I am writing a history of the 3rd BG in WWII. Please contact me if you get this message.
