Search for 1LT John W. WILSON, IA, d.04.17.43 GERM
As a "war godmother", I'm taking care of the grave and memory of 1LT John W. WILSON, who came from Iowa. I'd like to know if he still has any relatives or if anyone knows anything about him. Here's all I have for now : he was a B17 pilot, flew aircraft n°459 "Hellsapoppin", died on April 17, 1943 during a bombing raid on Bremen, Germany. Was in the 401 Bomb SQ 91 Bomb GP (H) - I already have their website address - based in Bassingbourne, England. The difficulty is that he seems to have arrived there only to fly this mission and die...
Can anyone help me keep the memory alive ?
Thank you and May God Bless You All!
