Looking for some info on the 325th markings.

Particularly the P-47's 1943 onwards.

I obviously realise the tails were Yellow-Black Diamond pattern, but what was the difference in markings between the 317,318 and 319th markings to distinguish them apart?

I have seen some pictures showing the cowling at the back of the engine house with a check pattern, was this one of the distinguishing features?

Also were the planes numbered 01-99 or 1-99, and were there any 'unlucky' numbers?

Thanks for any help, BTW any info on their P-40's and 51's would also really be appreciated.

Thanks again for any help, MP.
