A very special treat! The tactical squadron logo patch, along with the Medical Caduceus from the 608th Tactical Hospital at TRAB. Many thanks to Nathan Franzblau, who sent it to me, and got it from Don Maxwell, who was stationed at TRAB with him:

"2 buildings on Hempstead street on the left while going down towards the tower from control. the 1st of the 2 buildings is your court [?](for us building of storage of the telephone material) and with the back the tower of drying of the parachutes (even [same?] use for us)."
Thanks to Yves, a French airman stationed at TRAB after the Americans left for these two photos. The text is his, in translation.

"The 2nd is the tower of drying of the parachutes in construction."
