P47 & Pilot losses of the 332nd FG
This question may have been placed on site before but cannot recall when.

How many P47's were lost to the 332nd FG and what were names of pilots , how many KIA who were they, What became of the POW's and who were they ?.

I know Johnson and Tresville were both KIA but which P47 were they in ?

I also know of Brown and Maples survived the war exPOW's but again which P47 were they in ?
