Captain J Richard Butler
*Signature Value : £45

"Dick" Butler joined the service in January 1942 and was posted to the 44th Bomb Group, with whom he flew B-24s throughout the war. His first combat mission was in April 1943 and he saw action in Europe, North Africa and the Mediterranean. On the Ploesti Raid, Dick was co-pilot of "Earthquake McGoon". Badly damaged and flying at tree-top height it was only the skill of Dick and pilot Walter Burke that kept "Earthquake" in the air and brought the crew home.




Colonel Charles E Hughes (deceased)
*Signature Value : £35 (matted)

Charles Hughes was born in Asheville, North Carolina on the 8th of April 1921 and grew up in California. Hughes joined the Army Air Corps in 1941 and flew at least 26 combat missions over Europe. Charles Hughes trained on B-17s but transferred to B-24s on arrival in England with the 44th Bomb Group. He first saw combat in May 1943 on a mission to Kiel. A couple of months later he was in North Africa preparing for the Ploesti Raid, and on the mission he flew "Flossie Flirt". Badly damaged and low on fuel he headed for neutral Turkey and was interned. He subsequentdy managed to escape in a fishing boat to Cyprus and then back to England. After the war Charles completed his studies at Stanford graduating with a BA and MBA. His service continued in the US Air Force retiring as Commander of the Satellite Test Center, Sunnyvale. Charles Hughes passed away peacefully on Oct.ober 17th, 2010.




Colonel William R Cameron (deceased)
*Signature Value : £35 (matted)

Bill Cameron flew all his 38 combat missions with the 44th Bomb Group. He first saw combat in Nov 1942. He was the only pilot who came over to Europe with 44th BG and returned with them at the end of the war. Described by General Leon Johnson as "one of the best combat leaders we had", Bill was the pilot of "Buzzin' Bear" on the Ploesti Raid. Before the mission he asked British anti-aircraft gunners which plane, in a low flying formation, they would fire at. They told him they would shoot the highest: Bill Cameron took "Buzzin' Bear" through the Ploesti inferno lower than most other pilots and got her home with only minor damage, earning the DSC for his part in the historic raid. William R. Cameron died on his 93rd birthday on June 24th 2013




Major General William H Brandon
*Signature Value : £35 (matted)

In June 1940, William Brandon jointed the service and was posted to 66th Bomb Squadron of the 44th Bomb Group flying the B-24. He first saw combat in September 1942. He flew "Suzy Q" on the legendary Ploesti Raid as the 44th lead pilot, with 44th Bomb Group Commander General Leon Johnson as co-pilot. He was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross for his actions. Shorty after Ploesti in November 1943, he was forced to land in Sweden and interned.
