Thanks For The E-MAIL

The 44Th Depot Repair Squadron went From "Eagle Farm" At Brisbane to "Finschhefen" New Guinea. There we constructed a major Combat Overhaul & Modification Base. We even tried to install a 75 MM Cannon in a P-38. Lots of stories. I am 76 years old now, was a Graduate of "Embry Riddle School of Aviation" and ran a Flying school in 1946. Had 14 Aircraft. Been a pilot ever since.

From New Guinea we went to "Clark Field" In the Philippines. Have lots of photos.... Even Designed and built my own aircraft from the bare Materials. Please send E-Mail and feel free to use any photos you like. Now retired, Worked 25 years in Design for the RAYTHEON SUBMARINE SIGNAL DIVISION in Portsmouth R.I.

You Have a Great Presentation.... I Will Never Forget the Australian People..... Still E-Mail To Those I knew in 1943.
