Pat, No worries. I've been occupied with other work as well. Here is the link to Lt. Col. Norris Hartwell's page on the AAMB site: http://www.americanairmuseum.com/person/165034 It includes a photo of, then, Lt. Hatrwell after completing his first combat mission as well as a photograph of what was presumably an aircraft he flew at least one mission in. The 7th PRG HQ appears to have been stationed at a farm just south of Oxford, some distance from the Earls Cone Airfield area near Colchester. It owuld have been cutting it tight, but not impossible, to have the photos of the Caen/Ouisterham mission to Earls Colne in time for a 2:30 or 3:00 p.m. briefing. It would be interesting to understand how the PRG missions were slated --- were they, for example, run just prior to a bombing mission for use in briefing the bomber crews? After looking at a high resolution 11 by 17 enlargement of the 323rd's briefing session, the Colonel addressing the group definitely has two stacks of photogrphas next to him. He is holding one photograph, and a Captain is looking at it with what appears to be dejection or resignation. There are two Captains sitting in the front row of the briefing photo. Nine Captains participated in the mission --- Hodshon-P, Siegel-N, Wolfendon-B, Hunt-P, Adduci-P, Omstead, Patton, Christenat-P, and Seagraves-B. You may recall, Capt. Seagraves was the bombardier on Stach's crew leading Box III shot down near Mezidon MY. Capt. Hunt was leading Box II, with "Tex" flying as a gunner. Based on appearances and ethicity of surnames, it looks like Capt. Adduci, a pilot, is the Captain looking dejected or resigned. It would be interesting to find Maj. Stach in the photgraph, as it was the last photo taken of him alive. Jan [hr] Here is the link to Getty Images. The second photograph is of what appears ot have been the briefing for the 323rd's last mission on D-Day to Caen RJs. Take off was at 3:30 p.m. http://www.gettyimages.com/search/photographer?excludenudity=true&mediatype=photography&page=1&phrase=d%20day&photographer=frank%20sch [hr] http://www.google.com/url?q=http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/crews-of-b-26-marauders-charged-with-laying-smokescreens-news-photo/50492103&sa=U&ved=0ahUKEwi77sHLrrfNAhUPQlIKHZFnD0kQwW4IFjAA&usg=AFQjCNEcN_QmDvWQOaEKUkJ9Iiz7wmDJ5g Try this link for the photo of the briefing session for afternnon D-Day 323rd. Getty Images makes it difficult to provide a link to the specific photo. Please note that they summary is not completely accurate. The three morning missions attacked Utah Beach. My dad did not fly any of those missions. He flew the afternoon mission. Because he's in the photograph of the briefing session, it stands to reason the session was for the afternoon mission to Caen. Also, it's doubtful the press would have been allowed into the morning briefing because the invasion was still a secret. The breifing for the morning mssions was very early -- Frank's diary notes he had to ge tup shortly after midnight to have breakfast before getting briefed.
