These first photos are of Richard "Dick" Marchant who was lost in a plane crash on 5/16/44 just 4 days before my Grandfather (Archie Newton) took ill and had to take leave. I noticed that there was no info on Dick under his name so I am sending these first. Please make sure that his family get copies of these.
