H&S2 on Tinian

Note there are two pictures of H&S2 on Tinian. One is the wire section and the 2nd is the radio section. That is absolutely Bill Haddad holding the dog with the Radio section. I assume the wire section photo shows your dad holding the dog.

Without a doubt Bill Haddad is holding the dog with the radio section. In fact Bill sent me that picture. I may have the names of some of the men. Gunner Blassage is the man on the far right 2nd row in both pictures. Pretty sure the big guy in the front row radio section is Frank Johnston. Pretty sure Frank Lupien is next to him.

Sharon - is your dad (Capt. Bradshaw) in the Tinian picture?

Pretty sure all are dead from H&S 2.

          I would agree with your identification. I will have to dig to see if I have any other names with the photo from Tinian. The photo from Tarawa with H&S2 communicators is kind of small and hard to... more

        Okay so posting all of these pictures was very helpful and will answer the question on the dog. The Wire Section Photo is a different person holding the dog instead of Bill Haddad. In the wires... more
