Re:499 BG, 877BS
Anita, my uncle was on that same crew. Robert Webb, radio operator. Though some of the names you mentioned are not listed on the pictures I have, these names of the Geer crew are:
John H. Geer, aircraft commander;
John W. Iio (pronounced eye-oh, I believe), pilot;
Joe Tierney, bombardier;
Thomas Simpson, navigator;
Richard Sheak, flight engineer.
The above were the officers; the enlisted men were:
Ronald Talbot, CFC gunner;
Sanford Goldstein, right gunner;
William Wiegers, radar operator;
Alfred Rue, left gunner;
Edward J. Morrissey, tail gunner;
and Robert C. Webb, radio operator
I have several pictures of the crew and their airplanes. Please send your e-mail and I will send them to you. I have quite a bit of other information about the crew, as well, if you are interested.
