The 70th Anniversary Reunion at Horham was always going to be special – but no-one really knew how special.

Seven veterans and two of their spouses were among the 51 Americans, both young and old, hosted by the 95th Bomb Group Heritage Association. For some it was their first visit to Horham since the war.

For others it was a chance to renew friend­ships from previous trips. The event was within a few days of the actual 70th anniversary – the 95th offi­cially arrived in Horham on June 15th, 1943. The association’s webmaster Matt Miles had even designed official 70th Anniversary emblems and t-shirts. Linda Woodward and Beverley Abbott, stepping in to take over from John and Kate Kirkum who had organ­ised reunions for many years, spent almost a year organ­ising the event. Their hard work, and the efforts of the count­less others involved, paid off and rewarded us with a reunion to remember.

The seven veterans who visited for the 70th Anniversary were:
Jack Bertram, pilot, 412th Bomb Squadron;
Harry Hull, bombardier, 412th BS (part of Bertram);
Herb Wilkov, navig­ator, 336th BS (Garrison and Lennox crew);
Irv Rothman, top turret gunner/flight engineer, 336th BS (Foley crew);
Ed Yursky, 336th BS (Severson crew);
Ben Roujansky, (Trobovich crew); and
Bob Fay, ball turret gunner, 334th BS (Hiram Griffin crew).

We’re lucky to have so many talented friends here at the 95th Bomb Group Heritage Association. Our good friend Eric Elmer was busy all weekend capturing as many special moments as he could on video.
