AOB or MACR data on 744th BS, 456th BG (H)

Does anyone have any data on the aircraft assigned to, and/or missing aircrew reports for the 744th BS? This squadron flew B-24s and was assigned to the 304th BW, 456th BG of the 15th AAF flying out of Stornaro Italy.

(Still looking for info on 1LT John A. Bissell, but have tracked him down to this Squadron.)




Thanks//Mike

AIRBORNE!

You can join Footnote http://www.footnote.com/documents/28..._reports_wwii/

and look at all the MACR's that interest you.

I think you can join free for 7 days.

Hi,
Footnote only throws up a John M. Bissell.
Could you have the wrong Middle initial ?
Alex

No, my friend (John A. Jr) was named after his father. If the MACR was related to the 15th AAF 456th BG, I'd certainly consider that the report itself might have a typo. Any details in the MACR to indicate subordination of aircraft or of location?
