    Thanks for the reply Rich,

    Hmmmm......well Zempke's woolfpack....the 56th Fighter group were possibly at Horsham St Faith during this period........Here's what "Little Friends" have to say:

    Kingscliffe January 12 1943 to 4 April 1943
    Horsham St. Faith 5 April 1943 to 7 July 1943
    Halesworth 8 July 1943 to 18 April 1944
    Boxted 18 April 1944 to 9 September 1945

    As Lt Williams was flying a "razor back" P-47 the type and date would tend to point towards Horsham.

    P.S. Started off at Kingscliffe, Northants. I've heard the tower is going soon. I'll miss that view from the road.

    Nice find Mick and a really nice memorial. Why can't you find us things like that when we get lost here in the UK mate?
