A friend of mine's father served in VPB-111 in 44-46. He was wondering if anyone knew his dad or knew if any of the crew was still alive. He knows his dad's best friend was the tail gunner. His dad's name was S1c Paul Calvin Miller. He was a waist gunner on a PB4Y. He flew in the 1s and 2s. Pilot's name on most missions was Lt(jg) W.C. Brand. He also flew with a Lt(jg) Orr and flew a mission on June 18th 1945 with a Lt. LeBeyon which made a crash landing on Balambangam. Mentions flying on 28 june to Kuching to attack an airstrip and was attacked by an Oscar. I have a photo of him abd the crew and a couple of other planes from the unit. Any info is appreciated.
I'm also looking for any info on my Dad (died 1966 at age 40). I know he was gunner/radio man on a VPB plane (possibly a privateer)His name was Charles T. Horgan. He would have been a teenager at that time.(43-46) Did your dad know him? I think the plane's tail number was 39957 per my brother who has some of his pictures.
