Capt. Ray Williamson BombGp: 386th Squadron: 553 Years: n/a Class: ? Location: ? Comments: My name is Gary Timms, Assistant Manager of a County Historical Museum on the West Coast. Trying to find out any info. We had a gift at our museum. It was brought in by a lady who said she received it from a friend that had passed a way and didn't know what to do with it. Here goes. It was some pictures, a letter and a letter from the "War Department". The letter was written Nov 5, 1943 and postmarked 11/6/43, from Capt Ray Williamson, his last letter home. The letter from the War Dept. states that he was shot down 11/5/43 over France. Does anyone know what happened, the name of the aircraft, crew members or any other info. We would either like to find relatives or at least make a display with more info. Other info with this is plane crashed near Inglevert, France and Capt. Williamson was buried at Marquise, France. The War Dept. letter was dated 7/9/46  Gary Timms
