The photos on these pages were, initially, very generously submitted by James Leddy who found them during his research at the National Archives.  Mr. Leddy's original Xerox photo copies have been replaced by digital copies found at the FOLD3 website.  In some cases, the Squadron that the crew belonged in was included in the margin of the photo. If you can identify any of the personnel pictured here, please contact me.
