My father flew with FO R. M. Johnston in the MTO

Sicily, Italy

My father was Lt C. A. Anderson, http://www.warwingsart.com/12thAirForce/488thCrews04.jpg .  He was a navigator/bombardier.  He passed in 2009.  He rarely spoke of his wartime service and shortly after his death I received the few war items he did save.  As a child the one thing I remembered was that he said he flew missions in a plane called "Patches."  Well, long story short, I tracked him to the 488th and while digging around on the internet I stumbled across a photo of FO Johnston standing next to his B-25 named "Patches."

My father flew with the 488th from June - November of 1943.  The Squadron History shows he flew five missions with FO Johnston on two different planes, 8E - 42-32461 and 8L - 42-64545.

I'm afraid there's not much I can add to Colonel Johnston's history.  Perhaps someone can add to my fathers.
