LETTER FROM TOM LOWE (article first published : 2005-05-16)

I am researching the crew of a World War II bomber that was shot down on September 16/17, 1942. One of the men on board was an air gunner by the name of Thomas Clarence Field Orr. According to the Commonwealth War Graves commission in the UK he was the recipient of the Emma Smith Scholarship in 1938.

I realize this is a long shot, but would you or your organization have access to his files? What was the work that won him the award etc.? I am also seeking ANY family member who might be able to tell me about him. If you don't have the information perhaps you can guide me as to where I should start looking?

I really appreciate the help. Thanks, Tom Lowe: Studio City, California, USA. E-mail: gwp1@earthlink.net
