Comments: of the fearless five we shared a tent, bartered malt, played thousands of canasta games, salvaged radios from wrecks, at Teagu Cpl Art Weart lighted the airport and provided it's tactical phones with operators from the town before going back to Pohang. One time four F-80's were lost above the cloud layer and using Marine DF managed to land 3 (the fourth out of gas was lost but pilot bailed out OK). Art enabled a B-25 to return to Japan by fixing it's VHF radio - and helped refuel other B-25's by adding gas to tanks from 5 gal jerry cans.

Prior to leaving Hamhung Cpl Weart had to destroy a C-46 with China markings that had a gear up landing one night and was blocking the only runway - (being used to evacuate round the clock flights). Damn hard - used a Marine tank to haul it off and then mash it to scrap. Could not make it burn - tried mag, gas, flares, nothing. Got got a marine tank to mash it up. worked fine. The tankers thought so too.

Comments: Looking for anyone who served at Manston, Kent in England during 1951 who knew William Miller; he was a rescue worker in the USAF but I am not sure which unit. Was it the 9th ARS? Please, please help if you remember him.
