Erik Krouskop
320th Squadron, Moby Dick

99.106.228.77

My grandfather flew the Moby Dick, and I was wondering if anyone had any pictures of the plane or air fields he flew from? I've been slowly (oh so slowly) gathering family pictures and things and have yet to come across any. Admittedly I have plenty more boxes to go through, but the more the merrier!

Any stories of the squadron of Norman Krouskop would also be appreciated!

Thank you everyone...for everything.

      My Dad, Arthur J. Middleton, flew in the 320th Bomb Group. We are trying to locate a picture of the plane that he flew. Did you have any luck? Most likely my dad and your grandfather knew each other.
