I am not entirely certain but there is reason to believe this picture is of Sgt. H. Allen Larsen, 35th PRS. He authored a book with another 14th AF veteran William L. Dibble "China in the Eyes of Flying Tigers 1944-1945" Paperback – June 1, 2012 which is full of color photos of their time in China.
