Clarence "Bully" Beevers was replaced Lt. Scheider,
61st Sqd Engineering Officer, after Crew 31 lost Beevers.
"Bully" flew the 28 April mission with Crew
26 which was rammed by a fighter over Japan and
ditched off the coast.
26 and Beevers were sighted for 2 days in rafts but weather
prevented rescue ships from picking them up. The third
day, they were not found. It was hoped they might be Prisoners
of War but no such luck.
