    Rene,
    The b24bestweb.com site has a section dedicated to patches. The 453rd had a patch, but the 735th is the only squadron showing a patch.  My uncle was in the 734th, and to date, none of my research has found a patch for the 734th Bomb Squadron.
    Cheers,

    Rene,
    None of my information has a picture of Betty Boop. You may already know this, but Betty Boop was shot down by a fighter over Holland on March 6, 1944 while returning from a mission to Berlin, Germany. The crew bailed out over Zuider Zee and the plane crashed 4 km NE of Edam, Holland. Seven crew members drowned and 3 evaded capture. The MARC is 2970. Betty Boop is listed as 42-52226, B-24H-10-FO, letter "E", 734th Bomb Squadron.
