    My Grandfather Clifford Hamilton was the pilot of 42-30194.
    Both he and his brother went to Canada before the US got into the war to be flight instructors. After that they were both shipped back to the US to train as flight commanders in the B17. They then were shipped off to their new base in Horham England and flew with the 95th BG , 335 sq. .
