ARTIFACT: This is a United States 554th Bomb Squadron, 386th Bomb Group, 8th and 9th Air Force jacket patch, which comes with paperwork and nine photographs. The grouping once belonged to Sgt. Samuel Robert Prock. The 554th was a part of the D-Day offensive and flew B-26 and A-26 aircraft. One photo is of Prock, and the other photos are aerial shots of places he flew, such as Brest, Frankfort and Nurnberg (these latter photos are marked "e;restricted personal use only"e; on reverse). The patch shows a snarling panther on some red rocks.
