Season’s Greetings

Christmas can be a particularly difficult time to be away from family and loved ones. It certainly was for many members of the 353rd Fighter Group in December 1943 stationed thousands of miles from home and fighting a war. To create some festive cheer and, no doubt, cure some of their homesickness the Group held a party for local children from the Metfield area. I attach a couple of photos from the event below and wish you all the very best for the festive season and 2013…

    Enjoying your work. Read 8th AF book. No where the detail of your work and presentation. George Ahles of the 351st was my father-in-law.
