DOOLITTLE'S RAIDERS: EDWIN W. HORTON. Signature: "Sgt Edwin W Horton/Gunner plane #10/#40-2250" on verso of 3x1¾ ruled index card. Staff Sergeant Edwin W. Horton, Jr. was one of the 80 men who took off in 16 B-25 Mitchell bombers from the U.S.S. Hornet for a daring raid over Japan on April 18, 1942. Led by James "Jimmy" Doolittle, the raid, which marked the first time fully loaded bombers took off from an aircraft carrier, was in retaliation for Japan's surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. "Doolittle's Raiders" hit targets in Tokyo, Yokohama and other cities and scored a huge victory for U.S. morale at a time when Japan's position in the Pacific seemed impregnable. Horton was the flight engineer/gunner on plane #10, the last of the planes to take off headed for Tokyo. Ink note (unknown hand) on verso (no show through). Fine condition.
