    Go to There's tons of stuff about the 455th, including roll call and pictures of all the crews in each of the 4 squadrons (740 thru 743). Download the squadrons and go to page 241 of it.

    And read some of those emails on the 455th site. There's guys on there that know tons of stuff, especially a guy named Dave. Think he has an picture of the 15th Insignia with his name.
