US WWII 357th FIGHTER SQUADRON Photo Album - TOP!
AMAZING album to a member of the 357th Fighter Squadron, part of the 355th Fighter Group - the "Steeple Morden Strafers," a reference to its base in England and its lethal accuracy at low level. The fighter group destroyed or damaged 1,500 enemy planes, making it the top strafing outfit in the VIII Fighter Command during World War II. Comes with a squadron patch (reunion?), filled with excellent images and well captioned. Great aircraft photos, identified pilots, nice cockpit portrait ethos, great images of base life, officers, great portrait of the super famous CO Edward SZANIAWSKI with original signature!! other identified officers, large unit photo, photos of the local village Litlington, kids visiting the base, photos inside their barracks, CO of 355th FG Col Stewart, novel life raft design displayed, 8th AF CO Gen KEPNER, PX photos, GLEN MILLER performing, base dances and parties, ground crew posing in SZANIAWSKI'S plane, ground crew playing poker between missions, NOSE ART, signatures of other pilots on portraits, bombers, and more! Amazing album!
