The fourth set of nose art photos was provided by the niece of John Netherland, an engineer who worked on the roads and runways in Germany and France.
Click on the thumbnails shown here, for larger pictures. The original photographs seem to have been taken with an inexpensive box camera like the common Kodak Brownie; they do not have great resolution. My favorite of this set is the close up of "Uncle John"
