Raymond, Robert S

This is a photograph showing Robert S. Raymond dressed in his American Volunteer Ambulance Corps' uniform with ambulances in the background. The photograph was probably taken in France. In the spring of 1940, he joined the American Volunteer Ambulance Corps and went to France. He drove ambulances into unoccupied France where they became trapped by the German army and escaped through Spain and Portugal. Raymond traveled to England where he joined the Royal Air Force and became a bomber pilot. Later, he was transferred to the United States Army Air Force in England and shipped back the U. S. where he learned to fly B-17s and B-24s. He was sent to several bases where he taught students to fly B-17s and B-24s. This photograph appears in Diary Of A Volunteer, 1940-1943 by Robert S.
