ENOLA GAY CREW: GEORGE R. CARON The tail gunner on the Enola Gay pens this note to an admirer Autograph Note Signed: "Bob Caron" 3½x5½. Dated November 3, 1979. Card postmarked Denver, Colorado, November 4, 1979, on verso. Written to “Dear Steve”. In full: “Your book received to day. I've signed and re-packed it. Will forward to Nelson as soon as I can get to the P.O./ Sincerely”. George R. "Bob" Caron (1919-1995) was the tail gunner on the Enola Gay who took part in its historic mission to drop an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan on August 6, 1945. Seated in the rear of the B-29, he was the first to see the mushroom cloud. Caron had been given a camera at the last moment and snapped a roll of photographs as the mushroom cloud ascended. His photographs of the explosion were printed on millions of leaflets that were dropped over Japan the next day. Caron died in 1995. Normal bank stamps on front and verso. Writing along "Memo" line has been blacked out. Otherwise, fine condition.
