Senior officers of B-25s of 321st Bombardment Group

This photograph from the the 321st Bombardment Group's post-war 'Headlines' pamphlet shows the senior officers associated with the 321st towards the end of the war - Lt Col Cassidy took over early in 1945.

From left to right we see:

Lt Col Charles F. Cassidy Jr: CO 321st

Brig. Gen. Robert D. Knapp: C.O. 57th Wing (and the original commander of the group when it entered combat in Tunisia).

Lt. Col. Paul T Cooper: C.O. 446th Squadron

Major Thomas C. Bounds: former C.O. 445th Squadron

Major General John K. Cannon: Commander, 12th Air Force

Major Marshall C. Strenger: C.O. 447th Squadron

Major Harold S. Farwell: C.O. 448th Squadron

This document comes from a pamphlet produced by the 321st Bombardment Group after the war, which told the story of the group's activities from 15 March 1943-15 March 1945 in the form of a newspaper.

Many thanks to Christine Stewart for sending us this document, which came from the collection of her father in law Eugene W. Stewart, a staff sergeant in transportation with the 321st Bombardment Group.
