    Here is a story behind these photos:
    I have recently been blessed to have these in my possession.
    These photos were in a burnt out building and dug out of the garbage.
    This fire was in an apartment complex and there was literally tons of garbage thrown away and these were saved by a family member of mine.
    My boy and I are war nuts in a way.My family knows this lol. Old things and the internet are my thing. So I thought it was ironic for me to get a hold of these photos. I believe it was for me to put them out there for the world to see.

    I do not know the people in the photos.I wish I would of had the chance though.So I thought this was the best I can do for them.That is to let people know they served for a great cause.

    If any one knows anyone or anything please reply.

    I know some of the pictures are of planes in the sky and shot down.as i said these have never been seen before.I have scanned these original pictures and have started to put them on a couple of sites.If you go to any sites you will see these photos have been posted by me today.that's it.No one has these.I put my story with these photos in the post above.

    Also the names under the photos are the names that were written on the back of the picture.

    What a treasure! Makes you wonder how many pics are out there buried in an attic or lost somewhere?

    B-17G 42-107205 "The Ruptured Duck" (coded DF-O) of the 324th Bomb Sq, 91st BG. The ship was transferred to Bassingbourn from the 398th BG in August 1944; she lasted less than a month before she was blooded. On the 8 September 1944 mission to Ludwigshafen she was hit by flak badly enough to make a forced landing in friendly territory on the Continent; she returned to service two days later. The process was repeated 13 October, this time down for two months. On 17 April 1945 it happened a third time.

    He sadly seems to have passed away on or around 1 Dec. 2000 in Los Angeles, CA.

    Very nice pictures and difficult to see and find to-day. It would be nice to have some more of these "private collections" pics shown here. I could send those my father took during the WWII in Italy and Lybia.
