Description: Group of pilots of [unit]. Probably Naples, Italy winter 43. (Most are waring flight jackets with sq patch, enlarged pic may show 307th FS 31FG) Note below: My father was in the 308th FS, 31st FG, in North Africa, Gozo Island, Sicily, and Italy. He took a BW photo of this same building, labeling it a"Mess Hall". I've inferred from other photos that this picture was taken when he was stationed at Pomigliano AB, just east of Naples in the late fall or early winter of 1943. The patch the pilots are wearing are definitely the "Spitscat" design of the 308th FS, NOT the 307th. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/308th_Fighter_Squadron
