A Tribute to Fighters

Subject

A British bomber gunner wrote a thank-you note to U.S. fighter pilots

Description

There is no indication of which newspaper ran this article, however, it appears to be written by a British gunner in response to a group of P-47s providing escort to his crew. It shows just how thankful airmen, especially those in the bombers, were of the presence of fighter planes and their pilots.
