Crew #555 Orders for the European Theater:

Apparently the Crews flew over without any Unit Disposition. Their Bomb Group assignment must have been determined upon arrival to England. This group appears to have flown over with 4 aircraft. The Orders are dated July 19, 1944.
Crew #555 (Dad's crew - 1st. on list - Paul Bridgman - Pilot ) began further training immediately upon arrival and were flying bombing missions by the end of August 1944.

The crewmen were allowed $7.00 Per Diem each for their trip.
