Recently read the story of Old 666 and the Eager Beavers and their mission to photo-map the Bougainville coast prior to the U.S. landings there in June 1943. I knew of Jay Zeamer and Joe Sarnoski and their ordeal, but not the specific details of the mission until I read the Clavin-Drury book. It is good to know their story is still told, still remembered, still honored.

Just checking back in after a long absence. My Uncle H.A. (Billy) Bowen was a tailgunner on B-17E 41-9234 piloted by Ray Dau and co-piloted by Donald Hogan. The plane is laying in Black Cat Pass in PNG. Right where Lt. Dau sat it down on Jan/8/1943. I see the plane isn't listed in the 43rd's B-17's anymore. This was my uncle's last mission. He was hit by flak before putting two Zeros in the water. He died while being transported off the mountain.He was 20 years old.

Greetings. My grandfather, James T. Woods was a gunner on a B24 assigned with the 403. He was with the Mareeba butchers. I have his flight jacket along with his leather jacket with the Mareeba butchers patch. I also have a cloth map he used that shows bombimg targets, roads, structures etc. I also have his diary that he wrote in each day telling of their daily routines during the war. I also have a lot of great pictures of him, his crew and plane. As a Marine myself, I have the upmost respect for all of those men.

My Uncle Ted aka Theodore Romanowski enlisted in the Army right after World War II started. Before long, he was joining the fight as a gunner aboard a B-24 Liberator with “Ken’s Men” based in Australia. Ted served for more than three years, with much of that time spent throughout the islands of the South Pacific Theatre.

I honor my Uncle's memory by posting here as my Uncle Ted passed away December 14, 2016 at the age of 96.
