This reflects an ongoing effort to post photos from the 43rd Bomb Group’s 1943 pictorial album Down Under, placing names to faces as much as possible. Several resources were cross-referenced to minimize any errors in identifying these men. It is our hope that folks will come forward over time to identify themselves, a crewmate or a family member.

If you can identify an individual in the Down Under album, please contact the Association Secretary at secretary43bgroup@gmail.com or contact Janet Kimble at Jkimble@virginia.org.

Special thanks to Richard "Dick" Bennet (65th) and daughter Jordi for their input on this project. Also, Don Williams, son of MSgt Leonard F Williams (65th), provided additional information based on a similar project he had been working with former Secretary Ed Gammill. And, a note of thanks to the family of Ed Gammill (63rd) who kindly donated Ed’s "marked up" copy of Down Under to the Association to assist in this effort.
