Walt Disney Character "THUMPER"

Info Contributor - James A. Leddy
Caption Reads: "Lt Crosby and crew of the 848th BS, 490th BG pose beside their Consolidated B-24 THUMPER II at an 8th Air Force base in England. 24 Mar 44."

Info Contributor - Tom Brittan
The 24 Mar 44 date is more likely to be before departure from the U.S. because I don't think that the 490th BG air echelon arrived in England before Apr or May 44. Transferred to MTO 5 Dec 44.
