Does anyone have any information, service, squadron etc on a WW2 bombardier named Lt Byron Isbell. I know he was born in Massachusetts in 1922.

Thanks

Dan

Byron M Isbell O-2065394, was a bombardier in the 91st BG. He is mentioned three times for example on the following link: These were missions flown by the 401st BS of the 91st BG in 1945.

Danny,

It appears that he enlisted as a private on 28 Oct 1943 at Boston, MA.

Byron was from nearby Quincy. A prewar picture here: http://www.mocavo.com/The-Manet-Nort...1938/250686/54

Regards,

Leendert

Re: Bombardier Lt Byron M.Isbell USAAF info needed?

Gents,

First thanks for the photo! It is a unusual name I believe?

The photo I am unsure if it is him, I have had a good look again, I am trying to find out what aircraft the crew normal flew in, on the web it shows three missions in three different aircraft then nothing? In March 1945, I have written off to the 401st-91BG historian but nothing.

Can anyone help, I went through all the nose arts and crews and nothing??

The crew names:

Here is the crew details:

44-8429 P 2nd Lt. Rosselle, Donald J.
O-333592

T-6054
NAV 2nd Lt. Sensenbacher, Charles W.
O-2073227
BOM 2nd Lt. Isbell, Byron M.
