    I would also like to learn more about my Great Uncle Haldayne Jordan and the others of this squadron.

  4. Angela adds:

    Hi Jason
    Please get in touch if you can by personal e-mail.
    I was in touch with one of your relatives (Wilbur Haldayne Jordan’s daughter) some years ago, and spoke to her on the phone. She sent me a photo of your Great Uncle in uniform, which I scanned before sending her back the original photo. I have a copy of a letter sent by your Great Uncle’s wife to the parents of the pilot when the crew first went missing, and found photos of all the crew except the rear gunner.
