    I believe the name of this plane was Gotta Haver, and the report was filed by Miss Purty. Unless Paul Roscher happened to be assigned a different plane for the mission, which was the Miss Purty, but all those listed were his crew. I believe the # for Gotta Haver was 446820 or 44-6820 as shown above. The Engineer/Top Turret Gunner is a friend of mine and is still alive at 95, but has dementia unfortunately. Great stories he had back when in good health.

    You’re correct, they were in Miss Purty. Sorry for the confusion!
