Re: Lt. Col. Robert E. "Pappy" Haynes,

He would have been a Lt Col. In 1948, when he was the Air Force plant representative at Fairchild he was still a Lt Col.

In 1952 he was a Col and the commander of the 438th Fighter Bomber Wing based in Milwaukee, WI.

Re: Lt. Col. Robert E. "Pappy" Haynes,

In the account of Haynes' 6-kill-mission provided in OSPREY's "B-29 Hunters of the JAAF" his rank is given as Col. Is this a mistake ?

Cheers,

Michael

Re: Lt. Col. Robert E. "Pappy" Haynes,

Yes, that is a mistake. In the MACR for his bailout over Iwo Jima, which occurred 14 May 45, his rank is listed as Lt Col.

Re: Lt. Col. Robert E. "Pappy" Haynes,

Good afternoon RSwank,

shame on OSPREY.
For such a cool guy like Haynes a sole DFC is a little bit meagre.
Didn't he receive any other awards ?

Cheers,

Michael
