    Very interesting; I didn't think that 8th AF was doing much with camo, esp. by the time the D-Day stripes were being used.

    Ok, may be wrong on the FG. I can't find a reference for WR. 56 FG used, 61st FS HV, 62nd FS LM and 63rd FS UN.

    Ah ha! WR was for the 354th FS of 355 FG. They did not use the camo pattern on their P-47s like 56FG did. Curious plane.

    354th FS of the 355th FG (65th FW) used WR according to my references, although no reference to camouflaged Jugs.

    Operation Overloard, AIRFILE (P33)shows a P-47 (bubble top) with camo like that. It was the CO's plane LM-S but didn't have that invasion stripes. There is a color plate of a P-51 (WR-P). I painted a P-47 with that camo but no stripes.
