    Welcome to the forum, Liberando. Hmmmm... Wasn't that the name of
    a B-24 Squadron ? The Liberandos ????

    Edit: The Liberandos: The 376th Bomb Group (Heavy)

    So, tell us why you picked that name ?????

    I picked it because the "Lady Be Good " who was a Liberando got lost in the desert and in so doing they became immortal in a sense when they found them in 61. Just as My Uncle Bill West,a Naiviagtor on a B-24 did in 43 somewhere over Europe. I never knew the name of Uncle Bill's plane, but he is always going to be the 26 YO I see in that picture on the mantle with wide-eyed wonderment as people explain what he did. Somewhere in the Libyan desert there is still a missing crewman from The "Lady Be Good", maybe it was the navigator. I like to think that Uncle Bill would have done a better job with his charts though.

    I have a picture of Sir Winston with his B24 "Commando". Everytime I meet someone who is Brittish I say: "Thank God for Winston Churchill."

    I also think Hugh Dowding was one of the most underated figures of the War.
