The Lady Be Good 1943
The Lady Be Good a Consolidated B-24 Liberator, belonged to the 514th Squadron of the American 9th desert Air Force's 376th Bomb Group, based at Slouch ,South of Benghazi.
On April 1943 she was to take part in a bombing raid on Naples harbor. Her nine-man crew on this occasion were listed as :
William j . Hatton, pilot.
Lt. Robert F. Toner, Co- Pilot.
2nd Lt . DP. Hays, navigator.
Lt John S. Woravka, Bomb aimer.
Sgt. Harold J .Rips linger, flight engineer.
Sgt Robert E . LaMotte , radio – operator- gunner .
Sgt . Guy E . Shelly, gunner.
Sgt. Samuel E . Adams , gunner.
Sgt. Vernon Moore, gunner
As the 25 aircraft took off at 1330hrs, a sandstorm drove sand into all their engines. Lady Be Good was in the second wave of 13, nine of which had to turn back with engine trouble, and the final four (including Lady Be Good , which developed damage in an engine 30 minutes before her expected arrival at Naples, and had to abort the mission and head back to Libya) , jettisoning their bombs on the way. Due to combination of circumstances – the engine trouble with which the pilot had to cope, the cloud cover concealing the coastline, and the fact that the wind had swung round 180 deg. And was now driving behind them, the crew of Lady Be Good were unaware that they had overshot the Radio Direction Finder at Benina. The Benina Operator received a call from LADY BE GOOD AT 00:12 hrs on 5th April, requesting a bearing, which was acknowledged by the crew. However, the Benin operator assumed that the aircraft was approaching the airfield, whereas she had already passed, and was on her way south towards the desert.
LADY BE GOOD eventually ran out of fuel ,and her crew donned parachutes and jumped from the plane, landing in the Libyan Desert about 450 miles South of Benghazi. The aircraft , which would have provided them with shelter from the burning day time sun, drifted on for some ten miles before coming down south of the great sand sea of Calanashio, 180 miles from Sarir Oilfield. Woravkas, parachute failed to open, but the other eight men were re-united and set off northwards to try to walk out of the desert – a desperate struggle which was recorded in Robert Toner's and Harold Ripslinger,s dairies , found later. The eight had only a little water and food, and their parachutes for shelter.
By 9th April they had walked 65 miles under the merciless sun, and five of them, Hatton, Hays, Toner, Adams and Lamotte, had no strength to continue. The last entry in Toner's diary was dated Monday April 12th and states:" No help yet, very cold night ,Ripslinger managed to cover nearly 20 more miles ,his last diary entry being on palm Sunday, April 11th , and Shelley a further 7 miles, but in that empty, hostile environment so far from habitation , there was no hope for any of them.
The Lady Be Good was spotted from the air by a prospecting team of British geologists, Ronald Maclean and s.v Sykes, from D'Arcy Exploration Company ,later part of British Petroleum on November 9th 1968. The position of the aircraft was plotted as a useful landmark.
The bodies of the group of five were eventually found in 1960 by a BP Exploration team, as reported "The Times" of February 15th, and those of Ripslinger and Shelly were discovered later. The remains of John Woravka were found, again by BP, in August 1960, but the body of Vernon Moore has never been found to this day.
" It was therefore decided to remove the plane for protection and display it at Tobruk. The 700 km journey to retrieve Lady Be Good took from 1st – 10th August 1994, arranged under the control of the Antiquities Department at Cyrene. First I travelled [Dr Fadel Ali Mohamed] by Air from Benghazi to Sarir Airport., then drove out, with special desert guide in a second ca r,to the plane to locate its precise position, to see what would be needed, and to work out a plan of campaign. This stage took two days.
Gulf Patrol Company provided three huge trucks for carrying the plane, together, with a crane and a special machine for clearing sand by suction.
The group which carried out the operation consisted of Idris Erfadi from the Tobruk office of Archaeology, Muktar Essahli from Gulf petroleum Company, three drivers, Guma O. Hamed , Imrajeh A. Ehmeda and Essaber H. Shoaeb, myself Dr. Fadel Ali Mohamed .controller of Antiquities , Cyrene, responsible for the mission ,and the most vital person, the guide Salem Rafeh.
The three great trucks travelled side by side with my [Dr Fadel Ali Mohamed] Land Cruiser in front, with a 300km radio. Because our way lay through enormous dunes which shift every few days, the guide in his Land Rover travelled 60 miles ahead, in order to check the route. Every 20 to 30 miles, if everything was satisfactory, he would drive in figure of eight so that the other drivers would see this mark and know it was safe to follow his tracks. If a sudden deviation had to made, it would not be easy for the big three. If one
75-365 (Year 4) Wheel change :(
When I got home yesterday on my bike I saw that the off-side front tyre of my car was absolutely flat. I'd noticed that it looked a bit different from the others about a week or so ago and when I checked, found that the pressure was down a bit. So I pumped them all up at the garage - and now it's really down. I got a quote for two new tyres
(I was told that they were getting worn on the inside edge and needed replacing soon when I had an MOT a couple of months ago) from two tyre companies but most were shut by the time I rang yesterday afternoon (Saturday) so I'll have to get them replaced tomorrow (Monday) ... hey ho :(
(Photographic note:- I took this photo on Sunday afternoon but it's actually a reconstruction of what I did on Saturday. However, I'd got a photo for yesterday and this is too good
an opportunity to miss ... every cloud has a silver lining :)
