Cheryl, I may be way off base here, but you may be wrong in identifyng this group as members of the Flying Tigers.
As I recall it, there were two fighter squadrons organized by General Claire Chennault in the period 1941/2.They became known as the Flyig Tigers, and their aircraft were decorated with a shark toothed flying tiger logo.
They flew Curtiss-Wright P-40s, usually from Chinese bases, against Japanese targets,and with great success.
These crews were all American volunteers, actually under contract to the Chinese government.
In 1943, Chennault became CO of the newly created 14th US (Volunteer) AAF in China. Some of his original group signed on with the AVG-AAF, while a number opted out.
I have a book entitled DING HAO, America's Air War in China, 1937-1945 (Wanda Cornelius and Thayne Short, Peligan Publishing Co., Gretna, LA., 1980), which includes a roster of personnel under American Volunteer Group.
