My dad was squadron painter/artist for the 405th Squadron of the 38th Bomb Group. He did nose art on the B-25's, logo's on B-4 bags, signs ect. At the reunion in Little Rock, Arkansas a member gave me a copy of a drawing my dad did in New Guinea in 1943-45. I am in the process of having a graphic artist copying it digitally and putting the drawing on disc so I can send it to whoever wants to use it free. The artist said the disc would be McIntosh, IBM compatible . My dad's name was Herman Boccia. I'm researching all his artwork especially which planes he did the nose art on ''Tokyo Sleeper'', ''Dirty Dora '' ect. The archives for The Army Air Corps in Montgomery, Alabama (Maxwell Air Force Base) are only 2 1/2 hours drive from my home. If I can be of any help, Let me know . Would this be the type of disc (info) you could use?  (Sure is Mike - Peter)

Also, in my collection , I've got some flight crew reports from Port Moresby to Townsville. These I got from the archives in Montgomery, Al. They are actually handwritten.
