Letter From New Guinea

Vern Haugland was an AP correspondent assigned to cover the war in the South Pacific. As a passenger aboard B-26 "Yankee Clipper" 40-1521 he and the other crew members were forced to bail out and all had harrowing escapes from the jungle on August 7, 1942.

Haugland was lucky and soon linked up with the bomber's co-pilot Michael and together looked for friendly natives or a village. Without food and quickly loosing strength, the two separated on August 16. Haugland survived, but Michael was never seen again.
