Not the best of quality but a vey interesting photo of a P-47 in 55th FG markings. This was most likely one of the P-47 a/c used post VE-Day for transition training in readiness for possible transfer to the far East, where the P-47N would have been used. Of particular interest is the obviously long service record of this particular a/c. As can be seen, this is a P-47C serial # 41-6347 which was originally the mount of Capt. Eugene W O'Neill of the 62nd Fighter Squadron, 56th Fighter Group (see photos in 56th gallery) where it was LM-O "Li'l Abner". From the 56th it served with the 495th FTG and is now seen with the 55th's CG-4 code, still bearing the "Li'l Abner" nose art.
