    My Father was Douglas Harold Nash crew member Humpty Dumpty. He Died on June 3rd 1963 when an avalanche crushed the truck he was driving. Imagine that, 67 missions and fate took him that way. I was 4 years old. Mom said he didn’t talk about the war. Every thing I know I investigated. Mom said what ever you do, don’t ever throw away the flight boots , so fortunate to have for all the P.O.W. Camp to camp marches.

    Hello, upon searching for my family history through Ancestry.com, I stumbled upon the name William G. Wilson, who was my mother’s cousin and reportedly was the pilot of the Humpty Dumpty until it was shot down over Hamburg, Germany on Dec. 31, 1944. Lt. Wilson was badly injured before being assisted to bail out and became a POW.

    I further understand that Lt. Wilson remained a POW until the surrender of Germany. Unfortunately, he reportedly died in 1972. I have never heard of his war experiences and would appreciate any additional information that may be out there. Thanks!
