This book belonged to my father, John E. Voisin. He trained as a bombardier at Carlsbad, New Mexico.

This is an outstanding site--and this set of documents is particularly interesting. I just sent a link to this to a former bombardier of the 95th BG. Thanks for keeping this site updated so regularly.

Dad was a bombardier with the 95th Bomb Group (H). I am part of the AZ Wing of the CAF and am doing some research on the Norden that is part of our B-17G "Sentimental Journey". We are trying to maintain and restore the onboard systems as accurately as is feasible.
Thanks for the great resource!
