    I am the son of LWG Joseph Roman. I have done extensive research on the crew and plane. A couple of corrections are needed: My fathers middle initial is: T. The CP Herbert Berreau was not injured and was a POW. He passed away about 1999/2000. I can supply supporting documents if you want to email me at the above email address.
