Seeking any information on B-24 "The Butcher Boy" tail # 41-24108. Sgt. Alfred Sexton was tail gunner on this aircraft. I found one reference showing Lt. Archie Browning as the pilot. I also have a note that possibly a lt. McAndrews had also piloted it. I had yet to find hard proof of whose crew Sexton served with. Also is ther any record of gunner tallies known to survive. It is said that Sgt. Alfred Sexton had a few claims to his credit and later served as a marksmanship/gunnery instructor for the USAF retiring as a CWO3 in 1966. Any help appreciated.
