Harold Buckley

Post by mcgyverj » Sun Jan 02, 2011 7:43 pm

I am researching Harold Buckley and would appreciate any info, photos, or leads. I would like to compile the info and give it to one of his great grandchildren (my cousin's husband) for his upcoming birthday. I am requesting military records from NARA, but thought that someone on this site might have more info. Thanks in advance.

Hi mcgyverj/Jim, a lot of the WW1 aviation military records stored in one of the storage facilities were destroyed by a fire a long time ago.

I will search for any further information not already available on the US95th website about Harold Buckley and will post it here for you.

Harold Buckley had published a book, Squadron 95, which is out of print. The website of the last publishing company for the Squadron 95 book, Ayer Publishing, doesn't exist anymore apparently. Copies of the book can be occasionally found through used book dealers.

Good luck in your research and I will post whatever additional information that I can find for you.
