"Aces of The Eighth" by Jack Fellows

October-November 1944 Numfoor Island

These 5 photos were sent in by Ken Lloyd on 25 April 2002.  They were all taken in the October-November 1944 period on Numfoor Island.  “The P-38’s are “L” models that we had just been outfitted with to replace our P-38’s that we took from Moratai and delivered them to the 475th Group on Leyte.  The Nips had destroyed most all the 475th planes on the ground during a night raid.  Boy, were we happy to get those new P-38L’s,” Ken wrote!
