Grandfather: George P. Smith (1921-1983) He served in the 8th Army Air Corps with the 305th Bomb Group, 422 Squadron. A waist-gunner aboard, a B-17 Flying Fortress, his plane shot down on May 29, 1943 during a daylight bombing raid of the German submarine pens at Saint Nazire, France. The waist gunner right beside him, Percy Wright, was killed by a burst of 88 mm anti-aircraft flak that also wounded my grandfather. Luckily, he was still able to bail out with the top turret gunner, Hilton Hilliard. They were both picked up and hidden by members of the French Underground. Unfortunately, they were captured five days later by the Gestapo while trying to cross the Spanish Border. A hand-drawn portrait was done, based on this image, at Stalag 17 where my grandfather was held as a prisoner of war (POW) for nearly two years. #memorialdayweekend #memorialday #POW
