    Airfix's Mk V came with US decals as I remember. How many US squadrons used these, was it just the one?

    What a great memorial day surprise. I was looking for information on the 309th as I was trying to scan in and update photos from my dad and here was his Spitfire. I recognize the markings. He was at the time they were in England 1st Lt. Robert Weismueller

    Bob,
    You may not remember me, but I was a cousin of your father and knew him back in Oakley days.
    I also looked up information concerning him several years ago and would like to share that with you. I have two books I want to send you concerning the Americans who flew Spitfires entitled "In A Now Forgotten Sky' and 'American Spitfire Aces Of World War 2' I need to figure a way to do that so I will need to make contact with you.

    Bob W, My dad flew with your dad in England from Westhampnett. I have several photos of him. Would you like to have them?

    Just a slight amendment to be made. 309th were based at RAF High Ercall. The 307th and the 308th of the 31st Fighter Group were based at Atcham

    This is an old chain of emails but I just discovered a portrait of Robert Weismuller by the famous British artist, Cuthbert Orde. It is framed and is a vintage photographic copy of the original charcoal portrait sketch. I would love to have more info on Weismuller's service.
