I have this photo among the items left behind in my father's belongings. He was shot down 9/17/44. In addition, I have an Oil Painting of his plane,on fire, done after the war. I'm willing to share this image with you if you will contact me at 208 ***-**** NOON to 6:00pm in Boise, Idaho. I believe the C-47 crashed into a tank was his plane and he survived. Contact me for further info.
