Capt. Edward P. Ludeke 355 Fighter Group 357 Fighter SquadronMy Dad was very proud to have served as a pilot based in England until 1944. He enlisted in 1940, but I do not know when he actually arrived in England. I believe he flew out of the Steeple-Morden Station 122 in Cambridge County, which I discovered through my own research.
Dad would not talk much about the war. Because of that I do not know details and have lost track of his friends I met as a child who were from his USAAF years. I grew up listening to him sing the drinking songs that he had learned while in England. He had many fond memories of those years which he shared very sparingly. When he did talk about serving in England it was about the wonderful friendships that he had gained, but we never heard any stories about his P-51 missions.
I hope someone who knew him reads this posting and chooses to get in touch with me. It would mean a lot to me and my siblings.Phil Ludeke
