Info on Joseph R. Kingston and crew
Hello, I am researching information on my grandfather Joseph R. Kingston. He flew with the 93rd BG 330sqd from Sept. 1943 to March 1944. I have received quite a bit of information on my grandfather and his crews. I am looking to see if anyone has any information or photos of his crew mates. The names I have are as follows:
-Spaulding, John R.
-Noethiger, Thomas F.
-McAnsh, John W.
-Byrd, Hardy W.
-Muirhead, Robert A.
-Dawson, Donald L.
- Mahoney, John M.
-Segars, Henry K. (MIA 9-18-44?)
-Sundstrom, Richard C.
-Hlavaty, Jody B. (POW March 44?)
Most of his loading sheets have shown he flew all of his missions with most of the same crew. Out of the 25 missions he flew, I have been able to confirm he flew at least 10 of them on "Flying Wolves". The only major change was a pilot change in Jan/Feb. of 1944. I have included a list of his credited bombing runs. I am still looking for information, in particular, loading lists for his missions on the following dates:
Sept. 15, 1943
Jan. 21,31 1944
Mar. 11,13, 16 and 29.
I would also be interested if anyone has information on the crew that may have worked on the "Flying Wolves"
Thank you for any interest and information to help me with this project.
Joseph R. Kingston Jr. (grandson)
I would like to publicly thank Don Morrison, Vic Walzel, and Kelsey McMillan for their help in finding huge amounts of information I already have.
