Answer
Hello Bill, are you looking for history of the unit , or what exactly ???????
I have images of both the Group and Squadron patches and could make them in leather form, as to the history of the unit I can suggest several sites to post on if he's wanting the history of the Group/Squadron activity during WW-2 , I know they flew P-47's .

My area of knowledge is more in the way of the "emblems" of WW2 military aviation rather than the histories, but here's some address's that may help on that ,

US Militaria forum.com
Army Air Forces.com

Also would suggest trying to see if the 373rd Fighter Group has an online site , most usually do and they usually have a "historian" that should be able to help with the history of the unit .

I can be reached here for info if he's in need of patches
WeBeEmblems@aol.com

I hope this helps some, all the best to you and him in his search !!!!!!!!!!!!!

By the way the Group and Squadron emblems were both of "Unofficial" type .
