Yap Island Mission Loss—13 July 1944: I received a number of newspaper clippings and pictures of the Lt. Ball crew from the family of Richard A Morrison. Richard was one of four crew members who survived the shoot down and loss of the Lt. Ball B-24 (A/C #44-40609) over Yap Island on July 13, 1944. The pictures include a crew picture and a number of interesting articles including information and pictures about two of the crew members (Lt. Ball and Lt. Simpson) who were from the same home town. The AAF usually tried to avoid having crew members from the same home city fly together, however, one of them listed another home town in his records therefore they ended up in the same crew and were lost together over Yap (both MIA). The new pictures and information supplement the information I have posted regarding the submarine rescue of the four surviving crew members. Please view the new information at the following link. I look forward to any additional information others can supply to myself and the families.
