    Robert Telfer was my friend from our HMM-362 1962 Soc Trang days, - we went to 265 together in 1962 and stayed together until the day he died. he was fine Marine and crew-chief. That day, I was crewing my aircraft in the 2nd section beind the COs' first section, - a grunt Lt. got excited when he saw the a/c take its mortal hits. Expressions on the ICS was to the pilot going down was get it down - get it down - get it down. It was heavily smoking and wavering through the air and finally went over a small hill. Thereafter, we saw a hugh plume of smoke rising from the general site where the a/c went in. Sgt Lucas, the gunner, was a fine Marine also. - he survived with severe inhuries, as well as the 2 pilots. -Submitted by: Bunnie mccosar [bunniemccosar@windstream.net] 2008-01-16

    I will never forget this day. I was the gunner on EP160 With Frank Durban as the CC. Frank and Bob were very close friends. I think of Bob Telfer just about every day. We all gave some and Bob was one of those that gave it all. 40 years ago and seems like yesterday. Bob you were a great guy and you are missed.
