  1. It appears my father Robert Potters flew with Eli on the 1/3/45 raid on Cologne. The ball turret gunner was Glen Felton. Can anyone confirm this?

  2. Sorry, the date of the mission was 1/24/45. Target was Cologne. My father Lt. Robert Potters was the pilot, Eli was the navigator. I would like to know any more information you might have about this.
