This drawing was sent by Linda WICKSTEN whose late father-in-law was stationed
in India during WWII at a base under the command of Col. Frank HACKETT called

Linda has been trying for years to find out the identity of this young

would like to give the drawing to his family. Perhaps someone who knows this
soldier will see this and contact her.
