Fifty -five new photos have been added to the “Face of the 417th” gallery. Of particular note is the photo of the original crew for the 417th NFS from October 1943. Just beautiful! I liked it so much that I made it the feature photo for the gallery. If you click on the photo inside the gallery, you will see the names of the men in the photo. Let me know if I have any typos!
I have also added a the video/slide show that George Hoover of the 425th created. This is on the “Video Stories from the NFS” page, near the end.
I am busy gathering photos from other Night Fighter Squadrons and will be adding those in the (hopefully) not too distant future. If you have photos of loved ones or relatives from any of the Night Fighter Squadrons, you can email them to me for posting. firstname.lastname@example.org. Photos need to be in JPEG or TIFF format. Please include name(s), squadron number and a location if you have that information.
