This from Henry Boenisch:

The top photo includes Joe Sourcenelli, Radio Operator.

I was his replacement - for some reason he did not ship overseas with Earl St. John's crew.  The bottom photograph is the crew as it was in May 1945.  The three in the top row are unknown.  They could have been the Engineer, Navigator and Bombardier - replacements for our regulars that could not make the mission for some reason.
