My grandfather, Reginald J. Baker was serving as an AG aboard the John Bascom when she was sunk by a German air raid in Bari Harbor, Italy on Dec 2, 1943. He survived, although wounded. He was awarded the Purple Heart and Bronze Star. I would like to connect with anyone who might have a photo of the brave AG crew aboard the SS John Bascom. Even a picture of the ship would be great.
Thank you very much,
