Hi Dale,
I had ordered the microfilm of the Brooklyn Eagle newspaper for August 1944 through interlibrary loan and learned the flight surgeon, Capt. Leslie Roberts, had two married sisters. Because one of them married a man with an uncommon last name (Yarvis), I was able to locate a relative in New York City.So Capt. Roberts is number fifteen I think-getting there!

Could you please tell me what happened to the bodies.
I read in your reports that they were thrown free of the plane.
Yet my grandmother said the plane was hit by lighteningand no remains were found as everything disintegrated.
She said they buried an empty uniform. Can you tell me what the telegrams to the families said.
Also whathappened to the bodies.
Were autopsies performed?
Were the bodies shipped to the families?
Knowing the facts would give our family closure.

Sincerely yours,
Martin R. Yarvis
