My step-dad, Norman "Ted" Shorty" Currier was a Tailgunner/Radioman in PBY-5A off the coast of California patroling for Japanese subs. His Navy Squadron never saw a day of action, but due to mechanical failure went down killing the pilot. I have searched all over for ANY other information that I might vicariously honor his memory. I have only a few poor quality images. I welcome any contact to mmpizar at my gmail account. Thanks
