I am looking for any mission information for my grandfather Thomas Parker who was a nose gunner in the 824th Squadron.
J.E. White was the Pilot and the rest of the crew is also listed below. So far I have been able to find a picture (TF 33 pg 5) and a mention of him in (TF 18 pg 35) but I can't seem to find any info beyond the name of his crew.
Crew list: Robert Heath - N William Gifford - B Thomas Parker - N/G Theodore Gressen - B/G James Gunnels - R/O Richard Sites - T/G Elmer McCully - C/P Claud Griffin - E Thomas Reynolds - W/G J.E. White - P
If anyone could provide any assistance it would be greatly appreciated as I am very interested in learning more and surprising him with information/pictures for his 90th birthday in August.
I live in Washington DC and they recently had a fly over of WW2 Aircraft and his face lit up when I showed him the pictures and he started to talk about some of his experiences.
