"Bill" or "Gimpie"

(CNAC 194? - 1943)

There are about 80 photos in this album.
Hope you can add something to these photos.

Letter probably done very early in 1944

The photos are pretty much in the order they are in the album.
If you can help with faces, places and dates, please let me know.

The following eight photos are of the famous DC-2 1/2

Mrs. Robert Ellsworth Brown of Ann Arbor, Michigan
(Do you know her first name???)

Zed Soldinski

The following note about the below four photos comes from Greg Crouch.
"That wrecked and repaired DC-2 is No. 24, right? And it looks like Hong Kong in the background, too. I think that's Moon's (Moon Chin) wreck in the autumn of 1941. I bet he hasn't seen those photos in 70 years."

Six photos of Waikiki Beach

Claire Chennault and unknown

Most of these photos are probably taken at Kai Tak after the Japanese attack
December 1941

Because of the white hat, this is probably a Clipper crew member.

December 8, 1941 - thatís December 7, 1941 in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Chuck Sharp, Pan Am pilot, in the white hat, of the Hong Kong Clipper II being shot up in the harbor, is Capt. Fred S. Ralph, Pop Kessler, Maj Woods and Emil Scott while they are hiding among boulders during a Jap raid a short distance from Kai Tak Airport, Hong Kong.
Manila bombed that same day. This photo also appears in "Wings Over Asia, Vol IV"

Don't know if this belongs to CNAC, but it is a Vultee V-1A

DC-2's or maybe DC-3's in the distance.

I think the following four photos of the remains of the burned out DC-2 in a stand of trees is the wreckage of # 31,
your uncle's (Emil Scott) plane. I know he crashed into a stand of tall trees from Olga Greenlaw's book. (from Greg Crouch)
