THE STORY OF LIEUTENANT HAROLD M. MASSIE, TOLEDO, ILLINOIS 

JUNGLE ADVENTURE 
By Sidney James 

Excerpts from above captioned story, reprinted by permission from LIFE June 28. Copyright 
Time Inc. 1943. 

"Three Martin Marauders took off on a bombing mission from Seven Mile Airdrome in 
New Guinea. Their destination was an airport at Rabaul, on the northeastern tip of New Britain 
Island, where they were to drop oil incendiary bombs on a concentration of Jap planes. It was 
a routine mission. IMOGENE Vn was flying in the right-wing position. Her crew was inexpe- 
tienced. Co-pilot Eugene Wallace had been out only twice before against the enenny, while 
Lieutenant Harold L. Massie was starting on his first trip as first pilot. The rest of the crew 
that morning were as new as the war they were fighting in. 

The flight was completely without incident, even to the point that the planes swooped 
down to 1,500 feet for their bombing run over the Jap Airport. Just as Intelligence had reported 
Jap planes lined the runways. Two enemy bombers were taking off as they roared toward the 
target, and it was obvious that they had taken the Japs by surprise. Three trains of bomibs 
hurtled earthward. 

But the Japs weren't going to let their planes go for nothing. The sky, bright now with the 
midmorning sun, was filled with belated ack-ack. IMOGENE Vn lurched. Hughes stumbled in- 
to the cockpit from the navigator's compartment. "I'm hit," he said, holding his bloodstained 
side. As Wallace broke open a medicine kit, the plane dipped violently to the right. Down, down 
went the plane; at 900 feet it was righted momentarily. When it was apparent that one motor 
wouldn't hold the load, Massie gave the order to jettison everything movable. Lighter by a good 
2,000 pounds, the plane continued to lose altitude nevertheless. "Prepare for a crash!" was 
the only order Massie could give, for there was no longer altitude enough to parachute. With a 
mighty thud the plane pancaked into the waves. Battered about like so much debris, members 
of the crew began popping through hatches that the angry waters had broken open. Soon there 
were six bloody heads bobbing in the blue water beside the half-submerged plane. In another 
second the tail raised skyward. The struggling men heard anguished cries of "Please!" Then 
the plane plunged under and was seen no more. 

Each man began counting the heads about him. Massie, Wallace, Hughes, King, Bordner, 
Swan, but no Dukes; no Wlenski. It was they whose fearful cries had come from the plane. 
Little Joe Dukes had had his first and last airplane ride. 

All but Massie had inflated their life vests, so they were at least able to keep afloat with- 
out much difficulty. A strong swimmer, Harold Massie struck out for shore, some three-quar- 
ters of a mile away. His goal was a broad beach that spread out before a cluinp of thatched 
huts set under a row of stately palms. The village seemed at first to be deserted, but as he 
drew closer a swarm of near-naked natives rushed out of the huts to the water's edge. They 
were young and old, male and female, and they waved their arms, jumped and ran excitedly 
around, screaming and whooping. Presently some order came out of the chaos ashore. Two of 
the natives launched an outrigger canoe and began paddling. 

On the fourth day Massie decided to make a trip to the place where Wallace had been 
told they would find the other white man. He was gone 14 days and the boys back at the village 
were uneasy about him but he was, nevertheless, only one of their worries by this time, 
Bordner had taken a decided turn for the worse, and Hughes and Swan were unable to get to 
their feet. 

On June 10, 14 days after he had left, Massie returned. Wallace and King ran to him, 
grasped his hand and thumped his shoulders in greeting. Tattered and torn and worn and gaunt 



136 



from his trip, he was, nevertheless, the best sight they had seen for days. Quickly returning 
their greetings, he handed a cloth-wrapped bundle to Wallace. "Don't unwrap this, it's worth 
its weight in gold. Put it away before the natives see it," he whispered. When he had paid off 
the luluai with 14 slings or shillings for the services of two natives who accompanied him, he 
brought the two copra sacks the natives were lugging. 

As they sat in the twilight gloom, Massie emptied the copra sacks of the useful items 
the man had given him. The rain continued to beat down on the palm-tree fronds and the damp 
chill came into their fragile hut, but there was warnnth in Massie' s return and the new know- 
ledge he had brought to them, and the lost fliers slept soundly that night. 

In the ensuing days they scraped off their faces with the razor blades, took soapy baths 
in the surf and sang to the natives who gathered in front of their hut. It was high entertainment 
for the natives. They learned to put the clap-clap-clap in "Deep In The Heart of Texas" and 
they managed "helliva, helliva jeer" as the second line of the Georgia Teck classic, which was 
by far their favorite. Sometimes after these serenades, Wallace, Massie and King used to 
stroll down to the beach and look at the moon. They would see its path as a broad, shimmering 
highway leading to their homes and they would imagine themselves taking quick trips over it. 
Massie and King would nostalgically communicate with their brides--girls they had married in 
the rush of going off to war and had hardly gotten a chance to know. 

On June 30, it was decided that they must reduce the number of visiting mouths that the 
villagers had to feed by three, and Massie, King and Wallace left the village. This was 38 days 
after the crash. Their destination was the hide-out of Massie' s white friend. Their purpose 
was the scout possibilities for the future, Hughes, Swan and Bordner, the latter still down with 
his injuries, promised to try to stay in the village until September. 

THEY ARE DISCOVERED BY JAPS 

On the third day out, as they were walking into a small village, Massie collapsed on the 
trail. Carried into the house, he was utterly helpless. He had neither a chill nor a fever, nor 
any specific complaint, but he could not eat and he could scarcely move a muscle. The natives 
made a walking bed, a blanket slung from two carrying poles and 1 5 of them carried Massie to 
their destination. 

They arrived at their destination on July 9. Massie now seemed to be entirely different. 
When their white friend saw him he said: "You'll have to cheer him up. He'll quit. I saw an 
Australian soldier die that way. Nothing much wrong with him, just quit living." In a few days 
it was obvious that Massie was not going to quit, though his progress was slow in the face of a 
new menace that the fliers were meeting for the first time--tropical ulcers. 

On July 18 the natives ran to the village to tell them that the Japs knew they were there 
and were on their way. For the next three days they were forced to spend their nights on hastily 
thrown-up lean-tos on the trail, for the natives were further apart in the bush than on the coast 
The most disquieting difference between the bush country and the coastal country they had come 
from was that it was a country of villages in which they were not wanted. Massie and King, still 
in walking condition though nnany pounds lighter than their normal weight, decided to push on 
again. Thus on July 27 they departed from their companions for the last time. 

THEY LOSE MASSIE, KING AND SWAN 

Wallace decided to strike out for help and a day later, he met Hughes and Bordner. "Did 
you hear about Massie and King?" they asked as they rushed up to him. "No, what happened?"

said Wallace. "The Japs got them," Hughes said. "All we could find out was that they got to 
the beach and some natives they stayed with turned them over to the Japs." 

(NOTE) Gene Wallace, Marvin Hughes and Dale Bordner were rescued and this story is based 
upon their experiences. 



Th e Story of James Sherrick, Greenup, Illinois. 

I went through the war as a Reconnaissance officer in Battery A., I60th Field Artillery 
Battalion, 45th Infantry Division with rank of First Lieutenant. The 45th went into action, 
nnyself included, on July 9, 1943 in Sicily, Our next operation was September 10, (?) on the 
Salerno Beachhead in Italy, In January of 1944, the division made a support landing on the 
beachhead at Anzio, Italy. I was captured on February 18, 1944 on this sanne beachhead by a 
German unit. This ended my combat experience. I was in various camps during the next few 
months, Verona, Italy for three months, Austria for three months, and Poland for seven months. 
In January, 1945, a Russian column overtook the German connpany that was attempting to move 
us to Central Germany. Most of this group were prisoners. I, with the rest of these prisoners 
was evacuated, I was sent to Russia and then back to the States in April, 1945. 

I was awarded the Silver Star for action near Persano, Italy. For the day I was captured

Bill enlisted December 7, 1942 in the United States Navy Reserve at Effingham and 
was sent to St, Louis on December 13, 1942, for induction into the service. He returned 
home and was sent to the Great Lakes Naval Training Station on December 29. Following 
book training he chose the medical corps and remained at Great Lakes until February 9, 
1944, when he was assigned to Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. 

In August, 1944, Bill was sent to the Hawaiian Islands and there he was attached to 
the 23rd Marines, 4th Marine Division. On February 19, this division landed on Iwo Jima, 
where Bill heroically attended the wounded from D Day until his death. 

On March 4, 1945, while attending the wounded a large mortar shell landed near by 
and one of the fragments hit him, causing instant death. He was buried in the 4th Marine 
cemetery on Iwo Jima until the body was brought back to Toledo. 

Bill was posthumously awarded the Presidental Citation, the Purple Heart, and the 
Victory Medal.
