Dear Will:

Yes, I am the guy you are looking for. I did fly with Yatkones' crew. I came to England from Italy with this crew.

Roberts - Copilot
Perez - Radio Operator
Blackburn - Engineer
John Rickison - Navigator
Kenneth Fairchild - Waist gunner
Robert L. Benedict - Tail gunner (me)
Baker - Bombardier
John Holland - Waist Gunner

I have a snapshot of this crew beside the B-24. Also have a picture of a crew I was flying in "Sultry Sue."

I finished my missions with Lt. Lee, 44th Bomb Group, 67th Squadron.

If you have an address of any of these men, I would appreciate it.

Very truly yours,

Robert L. Benedict
