Resembles what a 33rd Infantry Rgt DUI would look like in a shadowy photo.

Scrolls are different, the 33rd Inf's is lower and expansive on it's sides, and it's shield is rounded. The one in the photo's scroll abuts the shield which is straight.

Found a match except for the colors, this being for the 324th Fighter Group a component of the 9th Air Force in Africa, maybe photo made the Yellow Blue and visa versa, color distortion.

What's his name? If he was 324th I likely have some info on him.
