Chester Rybarczyk, original Navigator with the Buslee crew, was very lucky to not be on the Lead Banana with his regular crewmates on September 28, 1944 when it collided with the Lazy Daisy.  Rybarczyk, who witnessed the collision and was concerned about the fate of the crew, sent this Christmas card to the Farrar family on November 23, 1944.  Still no news about the crew almost two months later.  Rybarczyk wrote:

I hope you have heard some good news.  I have heard nothing as yet.

“Chet”
