Warren F Hall, Gunner
1944 | Italy
Warren F Hall was a B-25 Aerial Gunner for the 321st Bomb Group, the 445th Bomb Squad, B-25 Mitchell Medium Bombers in the MTO during WWII. Warren joined from Boston, Suffolk County, Mass on 16 Jan. 1941 as a PFC from the National Guard. Warren was born in 1920 in Mass and completed 2 years of high school, he was White, Citizen and had been a driver of a bus, taxi and farm equipment (truck and tractor) and was single at enlistment.
From Gary Wilson (Warren's proud son-in-law) Nov. 2011
Warren enlisted in the MA National Guard on 4/25/1939. He may have entered the AAF in early 1941. We don't have any information on his activities before what I found for him in the 321st history (March 15, 1944). We know he was in the 1333rd Air Transport Command in India when he separated in October 1945 and had flown many missions Over-The Hump.
Probably because of too many war movies, I thought crews stayed together. However, in the info I have searched so far, he flew with the same crew or same plane more than once, only a couple of times. Perhaps as I get further along he will have settled in to a more set routine. Also, he flew on April7 and then did not fly again until about May 12. In late April the 425th moved to Corsica, however, they flew several missions between April 7 and when they moved. Any information you can provide as to what a typical routine was for B-25 crews, will be interesting and very helpful.
A little more information. Family memory says Warren was stationed in North Africa at some point. The plane crash apparantly occurred when he was in North Africa. It is possible that the squadron picture is also during that period. I am looking to see if Poopsie was in North Africa prior to being in Italy. If you have any information on how planes were transferred from North Africa to Itlay following the end of the Africa campaign, it will be useful. I believe the Africa campaign ended in the fall of 1943, so the timing is right.
I started searching the 321st BG from the start and found my father-in-law on a plane in March 1944. I am putting together a list of his flights and have completed March, April, and May. It looks like he may have been with group of new replacements on March 6, 1944. There is mention of a training lecture for 9 new gunners. His first flight was March 15.
