Wife & Husband Grouping - 5th AAF Flight Nurse
« on: June 12, 2014, 10:58:42 AM »
Technically this is a named grouping, but I felt it may suit better to post it in the Women in Uniform section considering the group consists primarily of the wife's items.

I acquired this group via a Craigslist ad from a gentlemen who cleaned out the estate of the wife.

The majority of the items belong to Margaret C. Cass (nee Thompson), who was a 1st Lt in the Army Nurse Corps, attached to the 5th AAF as a Flight Nurse.

Also included is the husbands uniform (service jacket and slacks). His name was Robert H. Cass and he was a Captain in the 15th AAF.

At the present time, I'm having some difficulty locating information on the husband. I believe I've found him, however don't want to be premature in sharing info. Golden Arrow Research is in the process of obtaining files for Robert as well as Margaret.

With respect to Margaret, I was able to confirm she was born 6/15/1922 and passed away on 10/31/2007. Included below is a copy of her obit which mentions her WWII service.

Research continues, however in the meantime, I thought I would share the grouping.

Hope you enjoy!

First up, the husbands uniform.
