    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.
