First Lt. David W. Wallace was number 4 to take off, following Lt. Col. John E. Barr the CO of 33rd Pursuit into Africa, and onto Karachi to join 10th AF and 51st Fighter Group.  I am interested in any information on this trip across the Atlantic, and across Africa and Asia to Karchi.

Carl Molesworth briefly mentions the trip in his book, "Sharks Over China."  I'll see if I can dig up more information that might be useful.

This link shows the ferry routes from US trans-Africa to the Far East. Date was 30 June 1942. I have a more detailed one of the Accra-Cairo one if you want it.

Nick
