    A little subdued this one but still quite interesting!..
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Another one of Spotted Cow, or 'Spotted Dick' to the locals (I should perhaps add that that 'Spotted Dick' was/is a traditional English pudding, studded with dried fruit... )

    Sorry to pull this out of the past but I missed this one the first time around. My uncle Joe was a tail gunner with the 384th BG, 545th BS. I have seen many pic's of the spotted cow. Like what was mentioned this was a assembly AC stripped of weapons. All aircraft formed up on it and when everybody was up the Cow would land and the rest would fly their mission.
    Very Cool. I love the 384th information!. Someday I would like to visit Grafton Underwood. I know there isn't much left except the local churches stained glass window which was donated to the church by the men of the 384th and a monument erected by the locals to honor those men. But I still would like to see the village where my uncle would of drank during his off time.
