Default 477th Bomb Group

Hello,
a little off the topic of R/C...but can anyone show me the patch insignia for the squadrons of the 477th bomb group? I am mainly interested in the one Fitzroy "Buck" Newsum was in.

Thanks!

Don't know which one had 'Buck Newsum in it, but the Squadrons were the 616th, 617th, 618th and 619th. Black and white images (poor quality and very small, 1in. x 1 in.) are included, along with word description of colors, among the information provided for each squadron in "World War II Combat Squadrons of the United States Air Force", published by Smithmark Publishers Inc. in 1992. ISBN 0-8317-1801-4

If necessary, and given some time to get my old scanner set up, I might be able to get the images scanned and posted.

I had a little difficulty accessing it from the link, but that is the entire text and the corresponding information for those Bomb Squadrons. Thanks for leading me to the updated Air Force History publications!
