The stories of R.C. Byrnes, Sr. told to his son, William M. Byrnes (note: in the late 1950's, I wore his jacket with his plane name "You've Had It" painted on the back along with 32 silver bombs, plus wore his 'gunner's gloves' with the index finger as a separate finger though the other 3 fingers were together (as a mitten). Both lined with sheep's skin.
