From Pete Goutiere
"Gordon and Mary Tweedy worked for CNAC in the exec. branch in Calcutta during the latter part of the War. Early in 1945, while Mary was heavy with child; she and Gordon took a flight from Delhi in a US military twin Beechcraft (C-45), headed for Kashmir. Half way there the pilot got lost and they all had to bail out. They were rescued and finally made it back to Cal. Shortly thereafter Mary delivered a baby girl. A General (two star) Hackett pinned a gemmed caterpillar (caterpillar club) on the diapers of the girl. So she became a member of the club.
I know that the Tweedys returned to NY after the war and he became a CEO of Time-Life Magazine. I also believe they died a few years ago. What I would like to find out, what happened to the little girl. It would be interesting to contact her and get her story."
Another source says, one of the Tweedy daughters was named Claire with dark hair, with an older sister named one June? or possibly Mary? The older girl had lighter hair and resembled her mother, Claire had dark hair and resembled the father - tall, dark and handsome.
