Hello, can anyone provide additional detail, historical information or references for these markings? The only other information I have is George Air Force Base California, 1955.

Here is a Factsheet of the 435 Fighter Training Squadron. Which was the 435 Fighter Bomber Squadron in 1952.

Factsheet 435 Fighter Training Squadron

This page shows the history, operations, and deployments of the unit since 1943, but for some reason it doesn't tell what aircraft were used when.

Thanks for the information. I'm interested in more detail on the scheme in my first post for a project.
