1 photo titled British-Lancaster--Dickson, Tarrant-
Earnheart
1 photo Dickson & Earnheart by Heavenly Body
1 photo titled B-26 High Sign--Dillard, Earnheart, Bragg
1 photo titled Earnheart, Dillard, Tarrant taken in front
of our tent
1 very small photo of Blair in a French village near our
field
1 photo of Lt. McVay pilot in our sq
1 photo of Lt Hatch take just as he got out of bed

Photos of aircraft:

Is there a website that I could post the photos with no names?

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Hello,
My Father-in-law also served in the 559th and was in the Battle of the Bulge. Does the name Frank Iaconelli ring a bell with your father?

Hi James,
My father died May 4,1991.
I am going thru his photos and hope to be able to find anyone ( or family of their's) that appear in his photos.
I posted names that appear on his photos.
Frank Iaconelli is not mentioned.

Tell your father-in-law Thanks for his service.

Hilma
