    Last surviving crew member of the Enola Gay has died aged 93

    'The last surviving member of the US crew that dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima has died.

    Theodore 'Dutch' Van Kirk died Monday of natural causes at the retirement home where he lived in Georgia, his son Tom Van Kirk said. He was 93.

    Van Kirk was the navigator of the Enola Gay, a B-29 Superfortress aircraft that dropped “Little Boy” – the world’s first atomic bomb – over the Japanese city of Hiroshima on 6 August 1945. The bomb killed 140,000 in Hiroshima. Van Kirk was 24 years old at the time.

    A funeral service was scheduled for VanKirk on 5 August in his hometown of Northumberland, Pennsylvania.'

    I just came back from Japan. They had a temple with stones from Hiroshima there as a memorial for peace. Apparently Hiroshima just a little memorial to the bombing, but that is it.
