480th Antisubmarine Group
Greetings! My name is Kris and I am a military historian doing research on the 480th Antisubmarine Group (as well as 1st and 2d Antisubmarine Squadrons).
The 480th, along with her assigned squadrons, was assigned to Army Air Forces Antisubmarine Command fighting in the North African Theater. Under the command of Colonel Jack Roberts, the 480th flew B-24 Liberators on antisubmarine patrols in an area of the Atlantic extending north and west from Morocco.
As the current 480th historian, I'm looking for old photos, patches, personal accounts, etc., that might aid in developing a more well-rounded unit history. Furthermore, I would love to have contact information on surviving members of those units.
I appreciate any help or information! Thank you for your time. Regards, Kris
