Okay,..back on the "74" trail.

Just sharing my thought patterns

We can say that BW174 was extant till 06/02/43 as it was used to shoot down a Single Seat Fighter(SSF) Though the Unit suggests it was with the 35thFG at that time(Month)

BW174 14-366 P400 Sumac 14/03/1942 USAAF 25-Jan-42 22-Feb-42 26-Oct-44 41stPS/35thPG ROADRUNNER INSIGNIA ON DOOR Project X 21/01/42 to Aust 22/02/42 R14/05/42. 1st Lt Duncan V Woodring 41st FS s/d SSF 4 miles near Wau 06/02/43. off Sumac 26/10/44


41-38387 14A-318 P-39D-1-BE Sumac SS Stephen Fields USAAF 15-Aug-42 35thFS/8thFG Had Shamrock on Starboard Door USAAF Contract AC156 1/6/41. 1st Lt John R Casey jr ASN# 429757 35thFS/8thFG, s/d a Val D/B near Buna 07/12/42. 11/03/43 P-39D 41-38387 41FS 35FG 5 TOA 4 Kimball, Richard D NGU Jackson Fld

Have to drag out that FY41-38*** IRC reel again and the BW/BX/BZ IRC Reels and examine them yet again. Have a new LED replacement bulb at last for old microfilm reader. Should brighten it up a bit

Meanwhile #75 AP375 that follows the last "two" early/mid in 1942. She went home to the US of A,......rare for a P-400
AP375 14-282 P400 Sumac 14/03/1942 USAAF 11-Feb-42 5-Mar-42 21-Jun-44 35th PG #75 "One for the road" Project X 11/02/42 to Aust 05/03/42 Ret USA 30/10/43 Named #75 "one for the road" off USAAF 21/06/44
