344th BG Christmas Mural, 1945

344th BG Christmas Mural, 1945

Here we see a mural created for the 344th Bombardment Group's christmas party of 1945, showing the countries the unit had been based in. We start with a typical British airfield scene, and move on to France, Belgium and finally Germany.

Many thanks to Bill Anderson for providing us with these pictures, which came from the collection of his father SSgt Clarence W. Anderson, who served with the Officers Club for the 344th Bombardment Group. These pictures show the group's Christmas party of 1945, celebrated at Schleissheim in Germany.
