The photo above was among many others donated to the 39th Bomb Group from the collection of Brigadier General James H. Thompson (then Lt Colonel, Operations). On the back of this photo "30" was noted. In other photos that have a number listed it has matched the crew number pictured.

In this case we know that M/Sgt Connie Davis was crew chief for P-30's "City of Roswell", however we have no other names of the ground crew.

If you can help ID the other men, please email:
