Melissa Nourigat
First Name
I am the niece of KV Cashman, navigator of the "Delivered Cheyenne 2/3/44; Hunter 15/3/44; Morrison 7/4/44; Assigned 816BS/483BG Sterparone 17/4/44; Missing in Action Memmingen 18/7/44 with Tim Gunn, Fuehrer, Cashman, Howland, Fischetti, Nicholas, Frieman, Odiorne, Niezgocki (9 Killed in Action); Jaski {wg} (Prisoner of War); enemy aircraft, crashed Schwarserd, Ger; Missing Air Crew Report 7098." My mother Catherine, his sister, passed away 3/8/2016. I have been searching for the families of our Uncles crew members for many years in hopes to share what I have inherited from KV's memoirs. I have pictures of him with his plane "The Catfish" and a leather bound hand written journal with accounts of his air raids. The winds of fortune recently favored finding the son of Tim Gunn's best friend and grandson of Mr. Jaski. I have a historical photo that is not from any magazine and hand developed film of Hitler himself upfront and close as if the film had been "found" or confiscated and then developed. Fascinating! There is no editorial or markings. Would anyone be interested in this photograph? It was enlarged to 11x 14 (I believe).
