Career of Paul Miller in the Pacific

Hi all,

In 1942, Paul Miller flies a lot in the Pacific.

He starts as a B17 Co-pilot, he escapes Del Monte airport Mindanao in Apr. 1942 just before the Japanese invasion.

He thereafter performs many flights against the Japanese with the 36 F.Squadron “Black Panthers”, flying P39 Airacobra from Woodstock airfield Townsville and 7mile Drone.

As per “Pacific Wrecks” website, he flies on 28 May against 20 zeros above Port Moresby, on 1 june 1942 with 13 Airacobras against 18 Bombers and 9 zeros and he strafes Buna in New Guinea on 22/7/42.

Anymore information on his career in 1942 on the Pacific front ?

FYI, he flew in 1944 in Europe, belly landed in France with a P38 (see other post), and after the war he flew F80 in Korea, was a major in 1951, retired in 1965 and passed away in 1995 in Hawai.

Thanks a lot of you can provide me with some information on his career in the Pacific front.
