I am trying to locate the Relatives and immediate Family of the crew of a B-24 lost in China on Oct 9, 1944. I am in the process of compiling a history of their missions and daily life in China, and I want to exchange information with any Relatives or family members. The plane was called "Red Hot Riding Hood" and it was with the 374th BS- 308th BG-part of 14th AF and it was lost laying mines on the Yangtze River.
The crew was:
Pilot: James W. Dunlap Co-pilot Theodore N. Dickson Nav. Wayne S. Schlentz Bomb. George A Lescher Eng. William S. Clarke(my Great Uncle) Radio James W. Brown(he was called "brownie" by the crew) Radar Walter E. Wilson Gunners Thaddeus S. Nocek, Harold R. Dawson & Ira J. Ingle
Also if you served in the 374th , during 1944 especially, and want to comment on your experiences -feel free to contact me.
