Re: Request for help

Hi Dimitris. This is FANSHAW BAY's symbol on a TBM-1C from VC-68 in Oct. 1944 ( also on VC-66); the FM-2s would be similar but with smaller numbers ( 16" high on aircraft up to 50' wingspan, 24" from 50-100'). This was Spec. SR-2D effective March 6 1944.
The TBM is in 3-colour camouflage; note the leading edges of wings and tailplanes should be Non-Specular (matt) Sea Blue rather than the Semi-Gloss on top flying surfaces.
Where necessary the anti-glare panel could be Non-Specular Sea Blue, more common on SB2Cs and Corsairs.
