    The museum at Polson, Montana, U.S.A. has memorabilia on display from bombardier, Herb Engender. Included are bomb fuse tags on which are recorded various missions, and his POW tag and Id from the prison where he was kept after they were captured.

    I would be happy to post a photo of our display if someone would guide me in the process, as I am not a techy.
