The crew was assigned to the 384th BG at Grafton Underwood in October 1943, and this photo was taken shortly thereafter, based on the absence of Air Medal ribbons on their uniforms (would indicate completion of 5 missions).

Identifications contributed by Mikel Schutz, George Schutz' nephew, who also contributed a version of this photo, which had been sent to "Hattie", George Schutz' widow, by Ken Swanson, the bombardier.

This photo was found and provided by Gail Bauer, of New York. Gail Bauer found these photos - that Dolan apparently sent to his wife - while remodeling their home on Long Island.
