Trip Report Sentimental Journey

Jump to last reply

My sister Diane said parts of this trip could be a scene from a movie like “Saving Private Ryan”. The movie opens in the modern day at a country church in England then goes back to New Year’s Eve 1943 and the story that brought us to the church more than 70 years later. I hope that I can do it justice in a trip report.

My father was a tail gunner on a B-17 in England during World War II. He lost his right leg in combat but to my sisters and I as children, he was our dad and he just had a wooden leg. That was our family’s normal. On New Year’s Eve 1973, when we were old enough to understand, he told us the story of that mission. Over the years we had heard other stories about his time in the service that were funny or interesting but this one he told only once.

Years later, thanks to the internet, my sisters and I connected with a man in England who is affiliated with the veterans of my dad’s bomb group. They no longer hold reunions but he continues to make connections with veterans’ families and offered to show families around the area where Daddy’s unit was based. My husband and I took him up on that offer and built a two-week trip around it. We would stay in Bath and London and make several day trips from London.
