    Here is another Photo of the crew of "The Ruptured Duck"

    B-17G 42-107205 "The Ruptured Duck" (coded DF-O) of the 324th Bomb Sq, 91st BG. The ship was transferred to Bassingbourn from the 398th BG in August 1944; she lasted less than a month before she was blooded.

    On the 8 September 1944 mission to Ludwigshafen she was hit by flak badly enough to make a forced landing in friendly territory on the Continent; she returned to service two days later. The process was repeated 13 October, this time down for two months. On 17 April 1945 it happened a third time.

    Here is a bit of info on the units based at Dunkeswell taken from the Dunkeswell Memorial Museum website (Welcome - Dunkeswell Memorial Museum)

    479 Anti - Submarine Group U.S. Army Air Force

    The 479th Anti-Submarine Group was activated in July 1943 in St Eval, Cornwall, consisting of the 4th and 19th Anti-Submarine Squadrons. The group operated under the control of No 19 Group RAF Coastal Command. The 479th had some success when based in St Eval, sinking two U-boats and sharing another with an RAF Squadron. The 479th ASG moved to Dunkeswell on the 6th August 1943. The first operational missions were flown from this base on the 7th. The next day Dunkeswell lost it's first Liberator when Captain R.L Thomas and his crew failed to return from their anti-submarine patrol. On the 21st August two more squadrons, the 6th and 22nd, joined the group. Due to the proposed takeover of all anti-submarine duties by the United States Navy the 6th only remained for one month, moving out to make room for Navy Squadron VB-103. The 479th ASG lost four Liberators while based in Dunkeswell and twenty nine men had been killed in action by the time the group ceased operation on 31st December 1943.

    Fleet Air Wing Seven U.S Navy

    On the 24th September 1943 Patrol Bombing Squadron, (VB-103) moved to Dunkeswell from St Eval, Cornwall where squadron personnel trained in RAF operational procedure. In October VB-105 and VB-110 arrived from St. Eval. These three squadrons, equipped with PB4Y-1 Liberators, remained in Dunkeswell until the war ended. In June 1944 a detachment from VB-114 with searchlight equipped PB4Y-1's arrived to fly night patrols. The United States Navy took over the base on 23rd March 1943. RAF Station Dunkeswell then became the United States Naval Air Facility Dunkeswell and the squadrons became known collectively as Patrol Air Group One, United States Atlantic Fleet Commander Thomas Durfee relieved Group Captain E.C. Kidd as base commander. When Fleet Wing Seven ceased operations from Dunkeswell, the squadrons had flown a total of 6,464 missions, sunk five submarines and assisted in sinking at least four others. The Wing lost 183 officers and men, a further 49 were killed in connection with the FAW-7 operation.

    I have a photo of this plane after it was forced down in France due to damage, unknown which time. The photo was taken by my grandfather while in the 9th AFF in France.
