There is a "Fighting 463rd" book but I don't have it I wish that I did though.

Apparently it has a lot of pages.From the 772nd book it references a page 450 from the "Fighting 463rd" by H.Rubin.By the way I am looking for your fathers name too no luck so far from my end.I'll keep trying.Eventually someone might come here and have that info.

Joel posted this when I inquired about unit, apparently he has information about that.

S/Sgt Paul Calkin was assigned to the 772nd SQ of the 463rd Bomb Group (H).

 

I do not know whose crew he was assigned to as yet but I will attempt to locate some records that will show that.

There is no one book that has the listing of all the crews assigned to the 463rd BG.  That is truly something I wish I had.  I do have some rosters but even they are incomplete (and sometimes inaccurate). 

 

The make-up of individual crews sometimes changed from mission to mission, depending upon several factors, with substitutions for the sick/wounded or necessitated by special requirements for the mission. 

 

I do have a few listings of replacement crews as they arrived in Italy but very, very few.

 

Maybe someday I will have the time to go through all the records I have and pull out all the rosters, crew lists, etc. and pull them together.  Maybe after I retire????
