As I mentioned in my last blog, I had finally located the family of Barney Edwards-Tail Gunner for O'Sullivan's CREW 713. I left a message for his sister Donna and she called me back this past Saturday the 18th.
We had a real nice conversation. She was surprised to say the least, but had already visited the website before she called me. She said that she cried when she heard Barney's voice talking about the naming of 'The Shanty.'
Apparently, her son has all the photos and memorabilia that Barney collected from the crew's days. I'm hoping that there will be some new photos that I've not yet seen from the boy's days over in North Pickenham.
I'm very happy to have finally found and made contact with the Edwards family.
And then there was one. John McCarthy-Left Tail Gunner. I still haven't found hide nor hair about him or his family. I know they're out there. I'm gonna find them!
Until next time,
Be nice to each other. (Except to Dallas Cowboys fans! HA!)
