This is a photo of Francis Farewell, Crew Chief 603rd Squadron. The date and his rank at the time of the photograph are unknown. Further information about this photograph would be appreciated.

Based on the history of A/C 43-38086, it arrived 11 August 1944 and was assigned to the 603rd with the letter C. It was later reassigned the letter L on 2 April 1945 after it's return from the continent after the 19 Feb 1945 mission.

Given the short sleeves and the tail letter L, the above photo was probably taken in April or May 1945.
