RE: [PBY] Jim Sawruk's PBY book.
As it turns out, I have not committed to this yet but would like to do it.
A lack of time due to work and family has prevented me from even getting it
started at this point. Now that my mother-in-law has passed away from her
cancers due to smoking, I may have some time to do the research for the
later part of the war. I know that I would not be able to start it until
next year due to the load at work which includes a lot of time away from
home right now.
If I get to do it, the volume will be about the USN PBYs operational
history in the Pacific during WW II. I have managed to gather a lot of
information about the first year of the war but there is lots to do yet. Lou
will have the last word on VP-101 & VP-102 for sure!
I think Ragnar has made real good progress on his Atlantic volume so there
is some new material in the works.
I am off again until 13 September so please take me off the mailings until
