Yes dad and I have been looking at that photo off and on and he has a few names for the folks in the photo… He also is unsure on some of them…
The picture was likely taken in later March or early April 1945 as Stan Messum pictured on top of plane was killed in later April.
So from top to bottom and left to right:
Stan Messum on top
Standing Left to right:
Possible Lloyd Hunt (maybe Monty Clow),
Possibly Peewee Dalton,
Kneeling bottom row:
Gerry (Gouty) Gould,
T (Ted or Terry) Green,
Unsure (fellow in middle between front row and those standing), Possibly Dodds,
James O’Toole (my dad),
Other names that may be here include:
Hope that helps…
Some pictures shared since I created this blog about that squadron.
