My Uncle Joe Grace grew up in Chester, Pa. When he was a teenager in the 1930â€™s he was more than an avid collector of aviation photos. If a Philly newspaper published a picture of an airplane he cut it out and pasted it in his Aviation Scrapbooks. (I have inherited all of them). He joined the Army Air Corp in 1939 and was stationed at Clark Air Base in the Philippines. When the Japanese invaded he was one of the few who avoided capture. With the help of the native population and a fellow airman he hid out in the jungle until 1944.
Long story short, they were finally captured and placed on a Japanese Prisoner of War supply ship. Ironically this ship was sunk by an American Submarine.
He was listed as KIA September 7, 1944.
I have restored this photo that he saved in Photoshop.
