A question during FD Highlights. . .what is the significance of the "18" and "20" in the corners of the WVS?  Earlier flights had "16" and "18."  What do these numbers mean?

It's the indentifiers for the WVS/Helmetcams between the three spacewalkers.

Drew Feustel (EV-1) = 16
Mike Finke (EV-2) = 18
Greg Chamitoff (EV-3) = 20

(I think, worth a doublecheck - but that's what the numbers reference).


Do these numbers have any significance?  What do 16,18, 20 refer to?  Are there other numbers?

It's the indentifiers for the WVS/Helmetcams between the three spacewalkers.

Drew Feustel (EV-1) = 16 18 for at least EVA-3
Mike Finke (EV-2) = 18 20 for at least EVA-3 & EVA-4
Greg Chamitoff (EV-3) = 20 18 for EVA-4

(I think, worth a doublecheck - but that's what the numbers reference).

corrected the number for EVAs 3&4.

Chris said it fairly well: they are the camera identifiers for the EVA members.
Remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our rights & freedoms, and for those injured, visible or otherwise, in that fight.

An extra one in the station gallery which isn't showing (yet) in the FD12 images gallery

http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/gallery/images/station/crew-28/html/iss028e005676.html

Same one as originally from Ron Garan (hi res version obviously), but either colour corrected or the one on his Twitter site was just poorer quality.

And updated the stitch as a result, looks much better:
