He came to our crew from Apollo, PA. He insisted on being called "Buck", and I have no idea why. He was the right waist gunner, and we all felt that his position was filled by an individual who could protect the plane from that side against German Fighter Planes. After our bombardier refused to fly anymore missions, Sgt. Bush took his place, and he was referred to as a toggeleer. His job was to push the toggle switch when he saw the other bombers drop their bombs without the use of a bomb site. Seven planes was used to complete the 35 missions over Germany, enemy occupied France, Belgium and Holland, and they named their plane "Elmer's Tune" after the pilot, my husband and a famous song called "Elmer's Tune" from the 40's. I would like for any of of family or descendants to know that my husband, Elmer Eugene Browning, Ball Turret Gunner -B17 and I recently wrote a book and Robert Bush has a photo of himself and one of him with his crew. The book is available over the internet, or your local book store or through us, using the ISBN 978-0-9817572-1-6. Thank you.
