Allied Expeditionary Forces (SHAEF) on Jan. 17, 1944.
NOTES: The 3rd Photographic Reconnaissance Group stationed at Borgo, Corsica

The 12th BG was never stationed on Corsica. All the groups of the
42nd Bomb Wing were transferred to the 15th AF in November, 1943 but the three
B-26 groups were transferred back to the 12th AF in January of 1944.
^The 319th converted from B-26s to B-25s in November of 1944 at Serraggia, Corsica and became part of the 57th Bomb Wing at this time before transferring back to the States in January of 1944. The 17th BG (B-26) was stationed at
Poretta and the 320th BG (B-26) was stationed at Alto for some time in 1944.
