Non veni pacem mittere, sed gladium.
Had a family friend that worked in the Mighty Eighth's photo lab, came home with his war bride, fiercely British lass. He gave me around 60 bombing photos from B-17s and B24s. Had one of them signed at an airshow by the pilot of the Memphis Belle. Offered them on loan to the Eighth Air Force Museum in Pooler GA. They weren't interested.!?
museums are all about provenience. if you have provenience for the photos they would no doubt reconsider accepting them
